The patio is shaded in the afternoon, so its an excellent place to enjoy Happy Hour. The seating is picnic tables so there's a spot for couples or families. The bartender is creative with his cocktails. Prices are fair and the menu interesting.

Nice place to get some tasty snacks and brew at Happy Hour prices. The pulled pork sandwich was good and the wedge salad was fresh. We enjoyed our visit.

my sister recommended this so we went with her son for dinner. Truly an excellent choice for an appetizer. Looks like there is a nice patio for outdoor dining (still too cool to check it out).

I know the restaurant can seat that many, but I would call in advance for a group that large.
