Great Happy Hour

We were pleasantly surprised visiting the post office after five years(we have moved away) and it was still clean, fun and the food was very good. Numerous appetizer, drink and beer specials were available. We also had a nice server/bartender and we visited by management Thanks for a nice afternoon!

The place you want to love - - but just cannot. Total inconsistency with food. Based on multiple visits in June and July, have been served burgers cooked perfectly and others that were incinerated (all ordered medium). Other lunch/dinner selections average to poor in taste and preparation. Service can generally be counted on to be average at best, or worse.... More

We were in the area, looking for a place for lunch and drove past the Post Office and decided to give it a try. A good choice. We had wraps (grilled chicken) and sandwiches (shrimp po boy), the wraps came a generous side salad. The waitress was friendly and helpful. A simple meal, but well done. Try it if you're... More

Great for date night, or family dining. Staff is very friendly. Place is very cute. Bar area can get noisy, but still a nice atmosphere. Highly recommend the chicken pot pie! All of the food is very good there.

We've been going here for years, and always enjoyed the selection and quality of the appetizers, sandwiches, and burgers. The waffle fries are the best, too. Most of the soup choices (other than onion) are horrible, though. The entrees menu has changed to somewhat quirky choices, and we don't usually bother with any of these. Really miss the ribeye steak... More

I often go to the PO for lunch or dinner when I'm meeting friends but by far my most favorite time is Wine Down Wednesday! You can enjoy dinner or snacks with half-price bottles or wine flights. I always get a bottle of Albarino since not many places carry that. Whatever I don't finish, they seal the top and I... More

Read the reviews and decided to go. It was Tuesday so we had $5 appetizers and $4 beer and cider! Nice atmosphere and pleasant staff. Nice to see that they are preserving this building. We had fun - but dinner was filling and there was no room for desert.
