My oldest daughter's favorite place in CB. Since we are in town checking on the progress of the house remodel, we decided to check it out. Want looking bar-pub with a nice menu. Great hamburger and fries. Wife had potato bacon soup with a Cesar salad which she rated 7 out of 10. Bartender service... read more

All our meals were great, the local craft beer on tap was very good, and the servers/bartenders were all very nice and helpful.

Came with the wife and kids for lunch after a morning of mountain biking. Great craft beers and food. Watching Elk Ave traffic from the deck in the fall sun was the icing on the cake. Fantastic place!

Hands down the best bar in town. Always has good music...sometimes big acts! Also in a very clean, smaller nice space. Good coldbeer brewed here. The late night stop or finish!

All about atmosphere, right? What a cool little joint! Outside, upper deck to view the streets and mountain peak of CB! Not to mention, the bartenders have a superb taste in music, goes along great with a few Beers!

Quaint bar and grill on the Main Street. Tried the homemade tomato basil soup and it was great. We also had the fish tacos and chicken Caesar wrap - both were very good. Really enjoyed the hand cut fries. Staff was friendly and service was quick.

Perfect environment for me and my friends, we loved it! (Bought some hoodies). Good beer, string lights, board games and big comfy table in front for a large group to relax at....also a deck outside overlooking the street. Will go back!!

Beer was alright, service was below average and slow. Atmosphere left something to be desired. Wouldn't go out of my way to go back to this one.

We tried to eat on deck but the smoking was so bad I could hardly breathe. And I'm betting they were smoking weed. So we moved indoors where music was LOUD!!! Then got our food. Burger was raw. Not a good experience.

We made our way upstairs to find a great sunny deck that overlooks Elk Avenue. We were greeted by Joey & found a place to sit. Lots of good sandwich choices. All of us opted for their 3rd # Burgers. They serve their specialty cocktails in pint glasses - so refreshing on a hot afternoon.
