My husband and I went to Key Hole last night for dinner. I really expected more based on the reviews. To us it is just an average bar with average food. Our server was very nice even though they were out of several of the beers that I ordered. I had the white fish sandwich which was good - nothing... More

Stopped in for a night cap and snack after a long day on the road. We enjoyed the onion rings and fried mushrooms along with cocktails. Our waiter was great and rushed the food in as they were going to stop serving. Nice choice to wind down the evening and relax.
