We stopped by for drinks and to listen to the live band playing. The stage is set up outdoors with palm trees and other plants surrounding the area, and there was plenty of room to dance. Great fun and service!

Great way to spend the morning, listening to a young cover band (super cute), eatting a great breakfast and the best mimosa.

Best place in town to let your hair down. Always has a great line-up for entertainment on the weekends & they are very supportive when it comes to community activities/fundraisers.

This local bar is fabulous. Clean and tastefully decorated. Comfortable lounge area in back of bar. Beautiful outdoor area with a stage for a variety of concerts. The owner and staff are accommodating and gracious hosts. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit on both nights!
