Stopped in at happy hour for some food and libations. Nice little happy hour menu with sliders and house wings. That took care of the food needs. Tuesday was 20% off good whiskey day. Lucky me! I’d go back for sure!

Great atmosphere, quality food and friendly service. My kid liked the mac and cheese. Right around the corner from our hotel it was a pleasent walk to get to the restaurant.
