Local "home" to natives that treat this as a gathering place, some you can find everyday for lunch. Good food, very lively, sometimes folk music. Seasonal drinks at the bar (Eggnog at Christmas a special treat).

The atmosphere was warm and we felt welcomed. We did not order any food, so unfortunately I can't offer any opinion, but the bartender was very pleasant and kind. We had a great time and will definitely return.

Seafood is great here, salads are fresh & delish..deserts were special. A bit high on price, but sure draws the crowds there on a weekend!
