My husband who owns two bars had to visit this place . We were first there early afternoon and the owner Rhonda could tell we were tourists as we were taking pictures. She offered to take one of the two of us. She was most friendly and even recommended a hotel close by which we ended up booking. We went in later that evening for their $5 Burger Special which was very good. A few days later we stopped by and the same bartender who had been very friendly the first day was not so much that day. It was fun reading all the articles, looking st old pictures as this establishment does have quite the history.

Wonderful food and unlike many restaurants the helpings don't overwhelm you. The chicken ricotta (I think that's what I had) was superb, love the capers in the sauce and the cobbler afterwards was spot on. Service was quick and courteous.

The building interior is worth checking out as it has a lot of history on display. Nice courtyard area in back. The staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Only downsides were a limited craft inventory on draft (5 when we were there)) and food portions small.

Love the open air patio/porch atmosphere - very unique. A great place to catch live music and a good meal.

Great atmosphere with music while you dine in the courtyard. Hamburgers and fish and chips both very good. Also does a special lunch menu.
