If you're looking for a locals beer joint this is it. New owners haven't changed much--sit in or outside. Quite informal attire.

Yes, we love our furry friends! We even have a dog menu, all day every day. We're also hosting a "Yappy Hour" event tomorrow, Jan. 19 from 4-7pm... It's like Happy Hour for dogs. Hope to see you there!
