Had a fun visit here with a few other couples on a Saturday evening. We brought our own appetizers to share and enjoyed the live music. Highly recommend Buckledown for a unique evening out!

Buckledown is a great place to meet with friends. They were offering about twenty different stouts and ales made on location to sample and buy. Growlers available on request and plenty on indoor seating. Food trucks make appearances quite frequently.
