Just in town for Friday night. Restaurant not too busy but lounge had the crowd. Grabbed dinner with my family. Good food, large portions, reasonable price. Great choice to get local flavor and skip the same old chains.

Just rolled into town for the night, wanted a quick bite to each before hitting the trails in the morning and Billy Barns provided. French Dip was good and my wife had the chicken sandwich.
