This is a neighborhood bar--nothing more or less, but they do what they do well. The building is nearing historic status. Everyone is friendly and the "porch" has some nice views. A great place to watch the fireworks on the Fourth of July

This is a friendly place where a banker, plumber, doctor, mechanic and old retired guy like me can all sit at the bar, enjoy a cold beer and good conversations/laughs. Owners are perfect hosts! If you haven't before, give it a try soon!
