We had a great meal with friends at this tavern. Pretty small restaurant, but seating came quickly. The servers were excellent and very attentive. The beer menu had a great variety, so there was something there for everyone's taste. We had the mahi tacos which were excellent and a chicken sandwich that was blackened. There is a good variety of... More

The best cornned beef and cabbage in town for St. Patricks's Day dinner. Only thing is why serve Guinness in cans? Seems like on just one day they should have sprung for the real thing on draft. Just saying.

Stopped for dinner here on way back from a day of hiking. Husband really enjoyed the beer. Kids meals were great. I had Brussel sprouts as my side and they were delicious. Food was great, drinks were great, service was great. Will definitely be back next visit to area.

We were staying in town and found this place on Trip Advisor. Parking was a little challenge as this place is located on Main street. We've eaten here several times now. Service is slow (I guess people there are not in a hurry). We've had the Pork, Mahi tacos (were cooked perfect) and fish and chips (not a big fried... More

Right on downtown Main Street with brewing taking place in a small basement. Yes, basement. Usually about 5 or 6 brews on tap at all times, they are well made and of good quality. We enjoyed the Chunky Gal Brown Ale the best. Food is mediocre to pretty good. Prices are reasonable. Always a good local and transient crowd and... More

You are best to order the local ale. The food is okay, but their brew makes up for anything lacking! A great place for a toast with friends.

I had steak and cheese, companions had turkey Chipotle wraps. Tots and brussel sprouts were delicious as sides! Beer also delish. Don't miss this one!

We stopped in to watch a game & have a few beers before our reservation at a nearby restaurant. The atmosphere & service were excellent. The punch in the face IPA was very good. The tavern also has a nice selection of regular beers if you're not into Craft brews / IPAs. Plenty of TVs and the food looked good,... More
