I've heard the music scene here is good. If you want that review check elsewhere because we came to eat and drink.
We'd been bike riding nearby and one of our party suggested we get a beer at the Axe and Fiddle. Not only do they have a variety of very interesting brews available but as it turns out their food - at least what we ate - was GREAT!
Four of us ate light meals - three of us had the pulled pork sliders and I had the salmon chowder. The sliders were decent sized and quite honestly one of the better BBQs I've had outside my state of North Carolina. Pulled pork with coleslaw on top just like we do it in NC. You get three and a dill pickle on the side. My salmon chowder was one of the best chowders I've eaten. It not only had chunks of smoked salmon (not nova or lox but pieces of smoked fish) but also clams, but pieces of potato, a bit of bacon, and some other things that I didn't take the time to identify. A great smokey flavor, a touch of sweet from the salmon, and hearty.
The only slightly downside......the service wasn't as it could be. We were there from about 4:30 - 6:30 on a weeknight in a prominent spot and once we finally resorted to getting up to find someone who could refill our glasses.

A great place for music and beers but not such a great place for eating and mixed drinks..The decor is really sweet and the acoustics is really good for a bar but the food is pretty basic and a little spendy for what it is. Don't go there for mixed drinks but a great place for beers and ales..

We have came into this place a few times and thought we would try it out again and agian thinking maybe the bartenders were a bit stressed or felt like they were to busy. We have gone in twice and it was a young guy bartender very nice and quick on drinks. The other 3 times were 2 girl bartenders and they were snotty and rude and very poor service skills. Semi good food but over priced we havent gone back not even for the music. Go to the Village green if you want good service good food and good music and fun. OH and people out side will bug you to buy there drugs not so cool.

A nice variety of beer on tap along with seveal choices for wine and cocktails. (We ususally just sample the beer with an occasional Mimosa!). The menu is limited; but the food is excellent. Also, a variety of music some with a small cover charge. Worth the stop!
