When we first walked in, no one greeted us and we eventually sat down ourselves. The waitress was friendly. The food was pretty flavorful. There was a stage for a live band, but the view outside is the most lovely scene I've ever met. A garden! So, it has a sense of being very casual, fabulous meals, and a fun... More

The title says it all. Food tasted great, but it was very difficult getting a menu in the first place. Even trying to pay the bill was an ordeal. I think if you're not drinking, you're invisible.

Went there with another couple and was delighted to get seated outside where the weather and view were awesome. We ordered the sampler for an appetizer and everything on it was beyond delicious. Our meals were all amazing and the bartender Cory made us margaritas that were one of the best we've had. Our waitress Megan was sweet and cheerful.... More

The foodies can keep their foo-foo "high cuisine". I'll go here for some authentic bbq, great local beer on tap, and live music.

Definitely a locals place! Great atmosphere, and very good food. Friendly waitstaff! WE did call ahead to make sure there was no wait, and were told there was a 45 minute wait. However when we drove past there were parking spaces, so decided to stop in a see. We were seated right aways and serviced fast! They must have been... More

Full of atmosphere. Can be a bit raucous but that's because it's used by many locals who are enjoying themselves. We liked it very much. The ribs are terrific and lots of great beers too. If you're after fine dining go elsewhere but for a great pub experience this is for you.

I had the pulled chicken sandwich and was pleased. My husband had the salad with shrimp and was very pleased.

We just got back from Canadian Thanksgiving spent in Vermont - this restaurant happened to be located within walking distance of the Inn we were staying at, but even if it were not, would have easily become our favourite place to eat. Food was amazing both nights we went for dinner ( I had a pulled chicken sandwich one night,... More

Stopped in to give it a try. The outside looks questionable at best. Inside has exposed beams and wood, and has great rustic appeal. They offer Tex/Mex and BBQ. The wait staff was attentive, but the kitchen very SLOW. We were there for more than 45 minutes before we finally got our food. Did I mention Slow? The Tex/Mex was... More
