Met a few friends here for drinks. Nice patio seating and casual vibe. Owners and bartenders were very friendly. Nothing fancy, just consistent, good experience.

It's a great small bar with a daily selection of Draft beer. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth finding.

Stopped in here on Wednesday night around 9:30. It was crowded, but not so many college students. I would say this bar attracts an older, more mature audience. Lots of great beers to choose from, and wine too. We sat on the back patio. Nice...More
