It came up on a Google search as it was open late and we were getting in to town late, and we were very happy with it. Service was good, food was delicious and nice beer selection. We tried the blueberry ale and loved it!

Visited this spot for lunch, food was good and beer was fantastic. We made sure to go back again and grab a few growlers to take him with us. Would definitely recommend their Blueberry Ale and the Whiskey Pale Ale.

We had lunch here on a weekend when the town was crowded. Yet there was hardly anyone in the restaurant. The beer was good - tasty IPA. The menu is typical for a pub. The service was slow and the place lacked ambiance. They need...More
