Great place to a quick bite, delicious food and the service was great. I’d recommend this restaurant to families or friends getting together. We were there on a Sunday about 5 pm and the server was very attentive.

We visited the tap room 2 times during our weekend stay. While it was very lovely and quaint and the food was good, the service was extremely slow, even during slow periods.
