Good food and atmosphere!

Welcoming to children. Lively and crowded! Eating on the rooftop was a special treat. Menu was very good...casual and inexpensive. Many assorted Cocktails and bourbons to try, although priced well, pours were smaller.

This is a great place to relax after a day of driving and hiking. There is a downstairs and upstairs bar. The bar upstairs is a little larger and more open. West End has an impressive bourbon and whiskey menu. The server was knowledgeable and offered several suggestions. If you like good bourbon, stop by.

Ate at the bar. The" Burnt ends" appetizer was great BBQ, especially if you like the crisp ends of the brisket. Fries were perfect and a huge serving. Made for an excellent and inexpensive lunch. Lots of beer choices. Well worth the visit, glad I went to the West End instead of the main drag.

Nice place to grab a beer on the rooftop deck. Welcoming to kids as well - with a good kids menu (one in our group had a peanut allergy and they accommodated her needs which was fabulous). A good standby for work lunch as well.

Stopped in for a beer and a snack. Good food, beer selection, and the place where the locals go. Check out the local beers and great local food.

Visited on a rainy night that made the fireplace that much better. The wings were done perfectly with the just the right amount of crunch and flavor. The ranch sauce is homemade with a generous portion of celery and carrots. The corn bread is served hot from the oven in a cast iron skillet with sweet butter. The deviled egg... More

The casual bar-like atmosphere belied the quality of the food and service. My husband and I showed up on Mother's Day for our first visit, and now I want to return with friends. The menu is short, but that didn't mean it was easy to choose. The waitstaff is knowledgeable, friendly, and very helpful and attentive. Drinks and meal were... More

These guys have a smokehouse in back of the place. So pulled pork was a natural choice for me. So yummy! We did have to wait close to an hour for our guilty pleasure, however. The place was bustling at 7pm on a Friday evening. (But then again, who wants to eat at an empty restaurant?) It had a great... More

We were hungry and tired. They were busy and short-handed. I was ready for disaster, but the food was spectacular - amazing burgers and fries - even the veggie burger rocked! Service was friendly and helpful even though they were short. Can't wait to go back!
