Nice little bar/restaurant. The courtyard is nice during the summer. It's a great place to spend an evening with family or friends. There's a nice selection of food and drinks.

Thank goodness for the reviews. Don't think we would have made it past the front door if it wasn't for the reviews. The patio was cute. The food was above average and really nothing else in the town appealed to us. It was okay.

One of the best spots to relax with anyone. They have the largest selection on craft whiskey and gin I have seen. They also have a great selection of craft beers primarily in bottle.
