This place is super awesome for having local, live music. However, it is so small in there. It’s almost impossible to get a seat when it’s busy so you always feel like you’re in the way. There’s no good place to stand. And if you...More

Stopped in for a drink and a snack during the Fire and Ice Festival. Bacon wrapped jalepeno poppers were amazing as were the drinks and service. Can't wait to go back next weekend for my birthday!!

Stomping Ground has picked up a great reputation for live music, fresh food, long bar for drinks, and packing folks in. Friendly, menu is seasonal, as kitchen is tiny-but turns out excellent sandwiches/salads.

The Stomp has a framed photo of Frank Zappa above the bar. If you know who that is then this is your one and only. The Stomping Ground is in a league all its' own.

We went just as the entertainment was setting up. It's really a cool little bar and I'm sure my rating would have gone up if we had stayed for the music. However we felt that we would have gotten more bang for the buck if...More
