This place is so cozy and has such character! Exposed brick and stone walls, comfortable seating, friendly staff and the food is AMAZING! They also have a huge beer list. I love this place so much!

After a performance of The Ground Hog Opry, 3 of us enjoyed a tasty lite bite and glass of wine to close out the evening. The bartender was very accommodating and friendly to chat with. I would definitely return.

Ate dinner at the bar on President's day weekend. Every restaurant was packed, but we found a couple of open bar stools. The service was prompt and the owner came out to chat with us. Very comfortable, laid-back atmosphere with tasty pub food.
