This was a night with a lot of fun! Great food, great beer, great people. It may be a little off the beaten path for some folks but it's definitely a place to go to, to stop at, or to make a special trip for.

The service is good although it can be slow during the summer with all the summer residents and bikers who pack the place. They have a good variety of beer and... More
