We were in town for the Art festival. We went to BB's for lunch. The food, when we finally got it was good. We first ordered our drinks and watched them get warm sitting on the bar while the wait person was sidetracked by her talking and being on the phone. While sitting there, 3 tables of customers came in... More

We visited BB's twice. The first time was on a Friday, the place was packed but we got a couple seats at the bar. Service was pretty quick and drinks were reasonably priced for a tourist town. People were fun to talk to here, very freindly. We even got to meet the owner and he bought us a round. The... More

The food is your typical bar food but worth it because of the great specials they have.

The name of the place brought us in. Took a long while to get service and the food was okay. Kids had a pizza that they said was very good. They have a nice selection of draft beer (13 on tap when we were there). Place was okay but not anywhere I would go again for food. Fun place to... More

Been numerous times trying to support our local businesses but have finally given up. The service has never been good. Most times they were short staffed...when there has been plenty of staff, they were lazy and not attentive. With that said, we do think they have the best pizza and will continue to call in our order and take it... More
