Also several vegetarian appetizers. I had the black bean burger with sweet potato fries, loved it! Portions... read more

Eat here often. Great sandwiches, and wings. Has somewhat of a bar atmosphere but everyone is friendly and you can sit out side under some pretty trees if the weather permits.

My wife and I ate here last week. She had a make-your-own, I had the Moooo. My sandwich was good, the horsehradish was tasty and fresh. Chips were fresh, beer was local craft, draft and tasty. Waitress gave samples so we could brouse beers. Service was quick. Would gladly eat here again.

Great place for a quick lunch. Large portions and very fresh. I ordered the Squealing Turkey Panini and my wife ordered the Bruiser. Both were very good! Next time we'll have to try the burgers.

You would not think it would be found here. The burgers are big and savory but when we want lighter healthy fare we order the wedge salad and add the grilled chicken skewer and we are transported to the Mediterranean in simple clean flavors. Outside courtyard is one of the most pleasant outdoor places in this all around charming town.... More

I think the food was good - to be honest - but the service and the attitudes were... More

Served with a balsamic vinaigrette dipping... More

I ordered the Bruiser .. it was very good. The chips were greasy, and the sweet tea wasn't very sweet. The meal was good overall, but it was quite pricey.

We visited the area and came across the Dark City Deli & Pub. We were surprised at how delicious the food was, the best food we had. In fact it was so good that we went a second time while in the area. Jen and Bill were very friendly and the wait staff were very welcoming, they also had very... More
