“Bar food with a twist”
Reviewed 8 November 2012 via mobile

An unassuming bar in Amherst, this place offers some interesting food choices. In addition they offer a good choice of draft beer, locals, microbrews and large brews. For food i ordered shoestring fries with melted gorgonzola and balsamic drizzle. Creative combo that worked very well.
