We stopped by this restaurant for dinner the last night of our vacation. The food was okay, but not great. The same goes for the service. It had a nice atmosphere and the beers were good.

We sat in the little interior courtyard on a recent trip through the area. We brought our 3 boys (7,5,and 2) and they all enjoyed their meals as well. Our waitress was excellent - really great service.

The sausage sampler was good and the service attentive, but what was unique was the beautiful and tasty imperial brown ale they poured. I submitted a picture and hopefully it will be displayed.
