Ate out side on the porch. That's a nice spot if it's warm out. The honey mustard was spot on and same with the chicken tenders. Kids went bonkers for them.. My burger was also very nice. I saw some ones pasta meal and the bowl was pretty full.

The day after the election 2 of us went here for lunch. They ALWAYS have great and inexpensive lunch specials but this day I got one of my long-time faves, chicken fingers. I know it is silly but they are deliciously crisp and perfectly cooked. Also their fries are wonderful. Friend had a large salad which he liked. Always good... More

The food is excellent. if it is a special ion the menu you know it will be good. The steaks are cooked perfectly. I have never had a bad meal here.

Decided to give it another try even though all of my favorites are gone. Staff has always been friendly and good. Ordered the Mexican salad to replace the deleted taco salad, my past favorite. What a disappointment!! Some scattered corn and black beans on bed of lettuce with taco chips around the perimeter. Good thing I added the grilled chicken... More

If you are into chicken fingers and honey mustard than this is the place for you. They have outside dining that looks out on to Main Street. We been many times to hear bands play at night .

Our party of four had a lovely casual dinner at The Exchange. We sat on the porch on a lovely late summer evening. The selections were varied for a casual dinner--soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and some specials. This is not fine dining but it is good food at a fair price. The servers were friendly and attentive without being overbearing.... More

Was a frequent customer until they changed the menu. Taco salad, chicken burger, and crab cakes are gone. The replacements are fair. The staff is friendly and makes the bar a fun place to be. Outside dining is a plus.

The Exchange is a local favorite, attacting a steady bar crowd. There is entertainment on severalk nights of the week. Food has sometimes been awesome but other times not so good. The last meal was fish and chips and the fish was deep fried so long that it was almost inedible. Dry and shriveled. I'll go back, but will be... More

Have been here a number of times for lunch and have never been disappointed! They have a good selection of lunch options and the food is well prepared and tasty. Reasonable prices and decent sized servings. Great place to eat and socialize. Active at night as well. Plus: off-street parking!
