There really couldn't be a better neighborhood restaurant/bar. Always a welcome smile, always good food, excellent drink, awesome music. If you haven't been you should. It's the quintessential neighborhood bar!

Very pleasant, classy pub food. Menu changes seasonally, with emphasis on fresh ingredients. Can get crowded at times. No television, which is refreshing for a bar.
