Response from Barry G | Reviewed this property |
Yes--you can sit at the bar and order the same food as at a table. There are also some bar-height tables adjacent to the bar area for the same purpose.
Is it possible to eat gluten and nightshade free here? Do you take precautions against cross contamination (for gluten)?
