“Not your run-of-the-mill place!”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

The Draft House was recommended by the desk clerk at Sleep Inn. Since we like to eat at local places when we travel, we tried it AND we liked it. Both of our meals were very good, the service was great and the waitress was so friendly. You can tell it's a good place when it's hard to find a parking stop!

“Amazing french dip sandwiches”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

I've never had a french dip like the Draft House french dip. The bun is huge which is perfect for soaking up the au jus. It's piled high with beef and served with fries (you can substitute a salad, but really, why bother?). They have a great selection of draft beers (hence the name) and the service is usually pretty good. It is busy though so get there before the rush to avoid waiting for a table.

Sidebar: This place has the nicest bathrooms ever. After a fire a few years back, they put in all new automated everything bathrooms. It's amazing, everything happens without touching a thing. Sounds crazy but with so many germs around lately I appreciate touching as little as possible in a bathroom.

Friends with us ordered the taco dinner and she said it was awesome. Their other sandwiches are good as well. The menu is large and everyone will find something to enjoy here.

“Reasonable prices, decent food, good beer selection”
Reviewed March 13, 2012

This place looks like a typical neighborhood bar inside - very dark, but the food is fresher and nicer than you would expect. There is a good selection of beer. The clientle is a mix of middle aged, young people, families and retired people. The service is friendly. And the washrooms seem reasonably clean, something that tells you owners have some pride in their place. The 1/2 lbs burger is our favorite.

“Local place for us”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

A bar with a fine restaurant what-to-be attitude. Well rounded selection of food and drink. The only stock exchange for drinks I have ever seen. Wish they would bring back the burgers they were known for 10 years ago.
