Located in a refurbished old building, the Loft Bar and Bistro serves good pub type food. The wait staff is friendly and casual. The food is good and reasonably priced.

Great food! Hubby comes all the time. My first! I had chicken Marsala and hubby had fettuccine Alfredo! Super busy with holiday parties! Service slow. Be prepared to wait if they are busy.
