We went here on a whim after dinner on a Saturday evening. It was cozy with a fire in the fireplace and a singer with an acoustic guitar. Service was very friendly and prompt. Reminded us of the rural English and Irish pubs we have visited. Delightful evening!

We have been here on occasion before. This was our first "cold weather" visit. The fire pit kept us toasty and the gentleman made sure that it stayed "cozy" by adding wood to it on occasion. Live music, a cozy fire a lovely drink(strawberry colada) and my beau by my side. This was a perfect Saturday night date.

We were walking around and happenstance upon a stairway that led us to another world. What a lovely hidden gem! We ordered takeout from the corner bar. The staff was exceptional!

We went at around 6 pm or so on a Monday and were the only ones there which was pretty cool. So we poked around looking at all the cool antiques that were displayed. It seems that the owner has been collecting since he opened the place. What a great place!

We stopped by Mt Adams after a Reds game. We came upon this place. It is very cool. The narrow entry way and the back patio area have a European feel. There were two guys playing guitar and they were pretty good. They have a very creative drink menu. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The inside inside was pretty nice also.... More

Stopped by for a drink after dinner. The outdoor seating area is very nice. I liked sitting and having a few drinks and talking. Neat place, I recommend stopping for at least one drink! Try the Kentucky Ale.
