We only had drinks here, but it's a great place for beers and people/car watching. Decent choice of beers available including some craft and local beers, drinks were reasonably priced.

I had a blast yesterday here. It is a comfy/relaxed vibe with a nice oudoor patio, cool indoor decor, fun music and good people. The Sidecar is a great cocktail and I look forward to coming back soon.

It's hard to make it to the bar to get a drink, but everything else is great! He live band was outstanding and the place had a lot of dancing and mingling which is exactly what you should go for!

My favorite bar in town! Perfect place for a casual date or girl’s night out! I like to sit on the patio and people watch while I sip on great drinks selection! Amazing bartenders and staff and John, the general manager is so friendly!
