I love this bar. So simple in what it offers, great food and music. Lives up to its name as being very friendly. Huge fun has been enjoyed there by me over the past 35 years. It's a winner. In fact, I'm going there today!

This seems to be the place where locals and visitors go for a drink. Pretty big place with lots of seating outdoors. Laidback atmosphere. Good choice of local craft beers on tap. Live band on some nights. Good service.
