Stopping by fernwood, for lunch, dinner, a drink, late night pizza, live music or just to stare at the woods is a must in this area. Friendly staff, beautiful view. A great place to meet locals or travelers alike.

We went to Fernwood for dinner and had excellent service and food. We returned the next night and just sat at the bar for dinner which was great. Their back patio is awesome.

This is a casual, relatively inexpensive restaurant. The quality of the food could be improved, even if they have to charge a little more.

The Pub/ Grill has a great ambiance, woodsy, warm, pleasant wait staff. Fun gathering place for locals and travelers, we happened to be there when the local book group met, and another night when karaoke braves took the stage. In the convenient grocery store most...More
