This is a tavern which is really a hole in the wall. The whole place was filled with bikers. The food was fair and the beer was in bottles. Do not recommend if you want to bring the kids or have a romantic dinner. The...More

As a bar the place may be great, but the entrees on the menu were less than average. We should have ordered easy to make burgers instead of complicated entrees. Great beer selection on tap, and the soup and salads were good.

A nice, neighborhood bar. Good beer selection. Better than average food. Good service. Been here more than once. The price falls on the mid-side between cheap and mid-range.

Looks like a bar, but the food is much better than standard bar fare. Everything is homemade, great service, great variety of beer and awesome sandwiches. Not much competition at Sharpsburg, but a very good place to stop after a battlefield visit.
