Got an after dinner beer at the bar. Then ordered some dessert. Was asked to pay for dessert up front. We did. Thought that was unusual. 20 minutes later , no dessert. So we told the bar tender to enjoy his apple pie!

We walked in. The place was dead. There were about 15 employees including a manager standing around talking. We bellied up to the bar, sat there for over ten minutes, and not one person greeted us! So we left! Not good business for a bar!More

Was there for a private party and liked the overall atmosphere and service. The drinks were inexpensive and the staff was clearly well-trained, attentive and courteous. Despite being a college town bar/restaurant, it was upscale, clean and lively.

You look at this place, and you think bar food, which it does have lots of. However, they have good non-typical bar fare, and they usually have the best holiday deals in the area. As a bar, their prices are average: not very cheap, but...More
