We stopped here for lunch on our way to Canada. The bar is very cute and has a nice menu and lots of beer options. The fries were so good, they had some rosemary on them and were great. We mostly got burgers and salads which were quite good.

I have been here many times. It is always stellar. It doesn't look like much other than a corner bar. But the food is truly remarkable, the cocktails are creative and balanced, and the beer selection is top notch. Don't overlook Mule Bar because of its name or outward appearance. It is genuinely good.

Try the Cuban sandwich with pork belly...mmm. The chicken or burger selections are excellent and match them with a local craft beer and you can't go wrong. Hang with the locals and have a good time with good food and good drink!

Sure, it's a bit of a hipster's paradise but if you don't mind the staff's ambivalence (only some of them but don't take it personally, it's just the hipster thing) you can enjoy some great beers and pretty tasty food. Have been to MB a bunch as it's a great place to have a beer while waiting for a table... More

Visited this local bar for a beer and a burger and was pleasantly surprised by the great selection of local craft beers and excellent burgers. It's small, friendly and you'll leave with a full belly and a desire for more.

Mule bar is my regular go-to for drinks out. They always have a great local list of beers on tap (including a couple of Hill Farmsteads) in addition to great regional offerings and a few guests from around the country/globe. The food is great there as well. There are several appetizer-type options that are very high quality. You can also... More

Mule Bar continues to draw good crowds with great local beer draft selection, exception food and daily specials. Today was "Blocktoberfest", and the featured brewery was Stowe's von Trapp Brewery. Mules' brotwurst on a pretzel bun with excellent mustard and kraut paired reallllly well with Trapp's dark Dunkel beer. Glad I went. I can depend on Mule for a good... More

We always have a good time at the mule bar! Cocktails are delicious, they serve heady topper if you are in search of that, and the food is always yummy. Sometimes it is a little loud and crowded but thats ok.

This restaurant has gotten some rave reviews so I wonder if they were just a bit off this day. One person on the bar and he had to do the dining room too, so service was slow. Beer selection was good. Food was Ok - the Brisket Philly had a sauce on it, which I wasn't expecting. The flavor was... More
