I am not a big beer drinker, but "Knotty Brewnette" is an amber ale that I would go back for. Our food from the truck outside was good and we had a good time visiting with friends here. A bit too noisy on Friday night...More

Staff here is great. Friendly. Dogs allowed inside. Neighborhood gem. Outdoor seating (summer) and normally, a food truck on site. TV's indoors. Love to go here on sunday afternoons and grab a cold one. Cider on draft as well. Just casual and relaxed.
