We just happened to find this establishment when looking for a place to have a cocktail and eat a early dinner. Our friends met us there and it was perfect for food and drinks. A lot of history in the building from the early 1800's....More

This place was recommended to us by the place we were staying. I have no idea why. Everything was just kind of there, the food, the ambiance, the service. The food was certainly edible but I wouldn't come back here.

We went here after seeing the Truman Museum. We were very pleased. It is in the basement, and the atmosphere was great. We had lunch and all the food was good.

The service was good and the food was great. It was the best chicken fried steak I have ever had in a restaurant. They made it like my mother makes it. The service was good and the price was reasonable.

In town for a conference. The place seems like a local hangout but was welcoming. Service a little slow at first. I had the Defendants Dirty Martini which was excellent. I was hoping for a good beer selection but it was lacking. My coworker had...More
