Would recommend a visit. Great choice of beers (and other) drinks at the bar and later we came back for dinner where I had the beat brisket sandwich of our trip.

We went here on a recommendation of the guy on the trolley car. Mac and cheese with buffalo chicken was excellent along with the margarita I had. Husband had the pulled pork and enjoyed it. Nice, relaxing place.
