I ducked into this place to wet my whistle on a hot summer evening. I was impressed with the selection of Belgian beers. As I enjoyed my beer, I noticed some sausage links dangling in the distance. I asked the bartender about them. They were...More

Attended a social function at Bootleggers. The food (I had a fish entree) was cooked just right, seasoned perfectly and had a great presentation. Husband had a beef dish which he also praised as delicious.

After reading good reviews and being in the area, we stopped in for lunch. The clientele is older, but I don't know why. The food was very tasty - French dip and fish tacos. The fries were very fresh, crisp and tasty. My only regret...More

The ambience is great, staff is friendly and professional. The food, however, is mediocre, and the prices are too high for my "taste."
