Cheap beer prices but not so cheap wine prices. The live bands in the evening are very enjoyable! Small venue so you may have to stand outside or wait to get in. The cheese platters are awesome, especially the Fig Jam!

We love to go here and split a bottle of wine and people/ dog watch. You must go next door to the cheese bar and get some meat and cheese. Everyone is very friendly and knowledgeable about wine.
