The breakfast menu is excellent and the pub food and happy hour drink specials kept me coming back. Service is also very good and the employees make you feel at home.

We stopped in for a birthday gathering. The staff was very accommodating. They didn't mind the mix of just drinks and light apps. It really is a great place to sit and watch the people passing up and down the street.

We enjoyed eating on the patio overlooking the main street. Our waiter, John, was very attentive and friendly. Salad with beef tenderloin was fresh and turkey on rye with sauerkraut was different and tasty.
