We stumbled upon this place walking downtown and are so glad! The atmosphere is casual and fun. Several beers on tap and many more craft beers bottled. Good selection of food and prices are reasonable. My draft beer was $8, however, so you may want to ask. Outside looks like a dump but as soon as you open the door and walk upstairs you see it's charm. I highly recommend for lunch or light dinner.

One of my favorite spots in town for a cold drink and some great food. Menu is constantly changing but they always have the "Disco Fries" available (don't ask, just try them). Great selection of beer and fun service.

This is the best spot in town, Very friendly service, good beer selection and the food is very good. They have a $.50 oyster special on Sunday & Monday. The Saturday and Sunday brunch is really good.

This is a tiny bar. We got in late and wanted a quick bite. They had a lot of tapas on the menu and decided to give it a go. The kitchen is open late, and they have a variety of food to pick from.

The mushroom martini was very good, buffalo chicken nachos were good. The beef kabobs were the best! Hand cut fries were tasty. Spicy shrimp were small and there were only 3, I would pass on that one.

Things to note, this venue is upstairs and very small. Almost all the tables are high tops. Jukebox had good selection. It is a young person's pub. The only people over 35 were tourists, but the service was great and no one made you feel uncomfortable.

We would go back again for a late night bite, but wouldn't our first choice for a dinner.
