Went to a farewell for a co-worker and the waitress tried to argue about getting us another table for the group. I had the tomato basil soup, which was alright, not hot. The tavern club was bland as well.

Appetizer of pepper chicken wings was excellent. Entree of salmon and burger were very good. Nice selection of local beers and a happy hour specials. Server was knowledgeable and a big help on our first visit.

Went for dinner after an arsenal cycling excursion. Had nice variety of foods and superb service. Decent local beer selection as well. Is definitely a much needed addition to the area.
