This neighborhood bar never fails to satisfy my food and beer tastes. The BBQ chicken Pizza is a must. All the portions are generous and the wait staff friendly.

Great spot - a go-to for a lot of the college crowd for a nice dinner. Great location downtown with good parking. Good food in a relaxing atmosphere. The Boynton Bucket is a particular favorite.

Great for families early in the night and for the bar scene later. Friendly bartenders, lots of beer on tap, and way above average food on the menu.
