The Thinking Man Tavern is a great bar. The vibe is welcoming, quirky and friendly. Great beer selection. Also an interesting menu of different bar foods. The chicken and waffle sliders were great. I'll definitely be back.

Thinking Man Tavern is a friendly spot where locals and non locals alike can debate the days events over pints of delicious (and well thought out) craft beer, excellent cocktails and tasty food options, from little to large. The space is large and moving tables...More
