Only place in town like it or surrounding area. Wine, cheese selection and offered 1/2 platter of fresh fruit and cheese. Customer service outstanding, and like the music to complete the experience like I was in San Francisco. Highly recommended.

We love this place. It has such great old time acoustic music and good martinis. Such an eclectic atmosphere. Late night snacks with your drinks are good too. If you've never been here..... you must experience it at least once.
