We stopped on a lark while downtown for the evening. The staff was certainly friendly and we were impressed by the excellent quality of the band from Chicago. Drinks were good. Too bad it wasn’t a dancing crowd.

Minimal selection due to concert in town....how hard is it to make a pizza? Other than that, very good waitress, tasty food and brew.

We went here while in town for Miranda Lambert. It was packed but they did a great job moving people through the door to get in and at the bar. Quick service, great live band, friendly staff, clean bathrooms. Fun after concert bar!
