My kind of place. Just dumpy and intimate enough. The Reuben sandwich was all it was trumped up to be. Loved the patrons and bartender. This place is not posh by any standard but just right for me.

Love to visit this place. It’s small and cozy. A great place for a beer and sandwich. I also love the baked Brie. In warmer weather, the roof top is a great option. Food and service have always been exceptional. I’ve been there several times.

My favorite bar in town. Beautiful building, smoking options, rooftop seating, full menu, experienced bartenders, I could go on and on. It is the perfect place to go with a small group of friends or a couple of coworkers after a hard shift.
