We stopped in for a quick drink as we are staying not far from here. The staff were friendly. It was a Friday night and the locals were just hanging out. Very nice establishment.

The restaurant is cute, almost like an old house turned restaurant. We chose it because we could make a reservation for 11 people. The food was great, maple salmon is a must try. The bacon hash that comes with it is delicious as well. There...More
