I stopped into Penny Lane Pub & Restaurant for some soup while in town on business, and the French onion soup was wonderful!

We stopped in on a cold night for a bite and were immediately welcomed by the warm atmosphere.The menu had lots of choices and the food was delicious. They also had several craft beers on draft. Our server was efficient and friendly and the food arrived hot and delicious.
