An upscale restaurant/bar. Other reviews say they serve over-priced bar food but that's not the case. Food was more than just bar food, including several specialty salads and a rib eye steak. Definitely a good place for dinner and drinks or just watch a game.

Great atmosphere. There is usually music on the week-ends. The bar is always busy, especially during ski season and in the summer. Very casual.

This is a fun restaurant with a bar that dates back to the 1800's. Great place to grab a drink and a bite.
