“Best Crab Dip Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

Stopped in a few times during our stay. Every time was met with a friendly bartender and patrons. Try the cold crab dip - it is so WORTH it!! Atmosphere is very cool inside.

“Three words: Macaroni and cheese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

We sat outside at the picnic tables and enjoyed the late-summer afternoon sun. Service was friendly and quick. We had macaroni and cheese (MUST try this) and pizza. Simple and great food. Location is across from the old post office. FYI - needs more bathroom facilities.

“Consistently good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

All the food is made to order, and it tastes like it. I had French onion soup, which wasn't salty and their Mac and cheese, which is served in an iron skillet. It was so good. Perfect comfort food.

“So unexpected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We have been coming to BI for years now and have never eaten here. This past trip we made it a point to try and we loved it. We ate here four times in the week we were there. We ate outside, my daughter got to play with the bean bags while we waited for our food. It was a great distraction
As for the food we had the chili, mac & cheese, salads & veggie burgers. All were great. The veggie burger was delicious. You may not think you will get a great meal here but oh how wrong you are!!
