This is a frequent “go to” for us. The menu is diverse, service and servers are friendly and competent. The most recent visit I had scallops and my wife had the wagyu cottage pie. These were off the new menu. This is the type of...place that we try to order something different each time, difficult though that may because there is a strong urge to have what we had last time. This is our favorite place in the area.More

My husband and I were her last weekend after an hour of hiking nearby. Plenty of parking and we decided to eat inside as the wind picked up and it got a bit cold. There was however plenty of outside seating and people were sitting...outside. We sat at the bar. Bar service was excellent as was the kitchen. Fast hot and delicious. I had a specialty martini the Ciderhouse. My drink had butterscotch schnapps in it and that for whatever reason overpowered the rest of the drink, but still a well made martini. My husband had a few local drafts. We ordered the pretzel to start, came out hot and with mustard. Very good, beer cheese would've been a nice added touch but it was fine. I ordered the Rooster which is fried chicken but could order it grilled. I went for fried. It didn't disappoint. Came with a sauce, smoked cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, bacon, onion on a nice grilled roll with fries with Malt Vinegar dipping sauce, to die for! My husband opted for the burger with fries. Bar service, waitstaff and kitchen were all fast and friendly. I'd go back in a heartbeat The restaurant was done well with social distancing at the bar, plenty of space between seats at the bar etc.More

Stopped in for a beveridge after a disappointing meal nearby. Bartender was knowledgeable, personable, and provided great service. Menu and food will see some change with a new chef, and staff are excited. We are too and will return for dinner!

Quaint little TapRoom & Grill. The cheeseburger and French fries were pretty good. Service was excellent. The server went above and beyond for our party of 7. We love the revolutionary sayings that are displayed throughout the Grill.
