This is a very good and friendly restaurant and pub. Lots of good specials - white chili, burritos, fish and chips, etc. Service can be a bit slow, but it is friendly and warm. Locals will often initiate conversations with others. Highly recommend.

Out of the craziness if downtown is He's located in Centertown. A great restaurant with great food and drinks. Family owned by a local family, they take pride in their establishment and community. Prices are what you would expect for a $$-$$$ restaurant.
