Stopped for dinner, but the rude and not friendly greeting we got from bartender, turned us off, and we left after one drink. Not even sure they noticed we left.

Great stop with a lot of history. We joined the Bitters club and enjoyed a few beers. Lots of historical pictures, papers and a true old time feel.

Reasonably good food for lunch. Historic building. Join the Bitters Club. Drink a shot of Bitters, sign your name in the book and get your membership card. Long legacy.

Food was very good, drinks were strong & everything was reasonably priced. Staff was friendly & helped us get into the Bitters book & got our card. Fun bar & gets very packed at night.

What a history! Be part of the Club. Drink a shot of Bitters. Sit outside in the front and watch the cyclists go by. Good beer on tap. Very relaxing.
