A great place to eat and relax. Especially on the patio!

This is typically a nice bar with a great selection of beers available. In warm weather, the patio is a great place to dine. The food is very good and I recommend the Souvlaki. The service is a little slow on the patio, but it is worth the wait. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a drink while you wait... read more

Looks can be deceiving, outside of this place doesn't look like much but it's got a great dining area inside as well as the court yard with plenty of tables. Wasn't busy when we went so service was fast and they were all friendly. Food was fantastic! They had so much to choose from but we went with the sandwiches... More

Good food and excellent service. We had the Rachel, the Cuban, and the Burgoon & 6th Burger. All were excellent. Great fresh cut fries.

Met friends here on Friday for lunch. The food was good, pub fare and the outdoor patio was nice. Since we were not from the area, we didn't know what was to expect, the outside patio is the place to sit during lunch.

3 recent visits. I keep hoping it will be what it was. However, fthis is not the case, I was given a basket of fries where none were longer than half an inch. 6 kegs were kicked with no replacements. I was given the wrong drink and also charged for a more expensive variety of the drink ordered doubling my... More

The Knickerbocker has great food and extensive beer and drink selections to chose from. The owners and staff are super people. Would highly recommend a stop at the Knick and you will be sure to come back again. You may even want to take your own specially canned "Krowler" of beer home with you.

Been coming here for years. Usually once a week or better. Great food. Great atmosphere. Great staff. Cant really find much to complain about. The Kourtyard is a great stop in the summer. Will continue to patronize

This is a local hole in the wall that is located in an older section of town, however we were not concerned for safety. The server was very friendly and helpful when picking our food. The prices were very good with a nice selection of salads, sandwiches and soups. Beer list was nice had a short list of craft beers... More
