Has about 5 regional craft beers on tap. I had the buffalo chicken wrap and fries which was really good. My wife wasn't super happy with her entree. Didn't get offered a refill on my soda until desert which was a kind of small glass. Had Mississippi mud slide.

Mid priced but great service. Food was good but ask about lunch entrees. Some are more like appetizers. We ate upstairs and the decor is great, many items that were original to the Carnegie library. The basement is bar food but a bit pricey for bar food.

Kind of a cool use for a historic building, but food is pretty much ho hum and bar a not so hip destination. Owner is a local political figure.

This restaurant is in the old city library. They've done the most they can with the seating. It's an interesting concept. Food is pretty good.

We went for Northside Nights and had to ask for that menu. I had the soup of the day, mushroom, which was inedible....really awful. My turkey club sandwich was round turkey lunch meat and without the described bacon. When I asked about the bacon, they brought a plate of cold fatty bacon.

Our ladies golf group goes in after evening golf and has dinner and drinks. Such a fun place that I would call a hidden gem. Food is truly delicious!
