Enjoyed the American Grilled Cheese that comes with bacon and tomato as well as the slat & pepper kettle chips. Served on good Texas toast. Also had the pork BBQ quesida appetizer which was fine. Little loud on the C&W music. Amanda was most helpful.

Located in the 'historic' area this is a good place to sit, drink and snack. Busy, noisy, and full of life. Good selection of beers; table and bar seating; pool table; small patio outside. Short walk to the water.
