Great food and bar. Menu is different than most small towns. We have been several times and have never had a bad experience. Drinks at the bar is a good way to end the day.

Has a nice looking atmosphere, service was friendly and very nice. Food is extremely expensive, was overcooked and of poor quality. I do not recommend if you are looking for great food. Side note: The women's restroom has two toilets and only one stall
