The history is a little murky, but we do know one thing for sure: D&T first got its name in 1959 when Mrs. McKeehan took over an old ice house. She named it D&T after her sons, Dan and Ted. From what we can gather, it's been a home, a convenience store, and a "real" ice house-the kind of place that sold blocks of ice to people to keep their food cold in their "ice boxes," before commercial refrigeration was readily available.

The place changed hands a few times: Johnny, Marie, Terry, Lilly, Debra are a few we know for sure-but it stayed a beer joint for Brooke Smith and the Heights. We're pleased to be behind the bar now. We've got 50 beers on tap, a great kitchen, and a smile ready for you every day of the year.

We enthusiastically live our values of community, quality, hospitality, education, and fun every day.

The Shandy's are all we go for! They have plenty of beer on tap. Staff is not the friendliest or most attentive but prices are reasonable. If your looking for great customer service don't come here... If you're looking for a calm environment to drink some beer then join us!

Two old couples wandered into a bar and...they were so nice to us! Only one beer-drinker among us but he says his "Mother in Lager" was excellent. The people, atmosphere and parking were 5-star but This review is limited to 4 stars because the Cabernet was chilled and terrible. But Who cares about their wine.- it's a beer place. Recommended.

This bar is one of our favorites - a very local establishment. Mainly beer only, but so many options. Their food is also great. It is a very nice place to relax for happy hour or the afternoon outside.

D & T Drive Inn is one of those places with a superb atmosphere. They have a great selection of beers and local ciders. It's very rare that I go to a place and they have a brand of cider I haven't tried but this place had several. Give D&T a try, you won't regret it. Enjoy!
