Best place to go for a burger-with choices for small, medium, large appetites. Other offerings are equally good. Love it here and happily come back when I'm looking for a casual, comfortable place to dine.

This place is a true hidden gem. The local flair is fun and inviting. The building is an historic icon in Ivoryton. Conversation between customers is encouraged (because the bartender turns off all the TV's), and the regulars are a friendly mixture of characters! Swapping...More

No thanks is what I'll say if someone asks me to go back to this restaurant. First, the smell of bathroom disinfectant meets you at the door. Yes it's a small place, and I'm glad they keep the bathroom clean, but I don't want to...More

This historically rich tavern has the most monumental burger assortment, both sizes and flavors. The burger was divine, hand-packed and delicious. The waitress was an invaluable "guide" as to which menu item would suit each of us best. A further testament to the tavern was...More
