Sitting outside on the porch on a beautiful summer day provided a great spot for lunch. Terrific selection of beers on tap complemented a delicious smoked salmon wrap. Unfortunately, the waitstaff did not match the Southern ambiance of welcoming hospitality. Even though, the location, food,...More

Great dinner- I had Shepherd's Pie, and Bailey's on the rocks. Service was great, in spite of the huge crowd.

After walking around the historic town taking in the sites and shops, we were pleasantly surprised to find a SATURDAY happy hour to quench our thirst. And the tap selection offered several choices too. Our lady bartender wasn't all that friendly, more perfunctory than anything....More

We sat in the bar area only. The female bartender acted as if she didn't want to be there. The male bartender needs to be checked out by the Health Dept. We sat there and watched while he mixed a drink for a patron. First...More
