We stopped in for a drink after dining upstairs in the elegant 1789 Restaurant. The two could not be more different. The Tombs has a much older history and has not let the more upscale sister restaurant change it. I can imagine why college like it so much, kind of funky with the aroma of fried food everywhere.

It certainly didn't disappoint, right down to the free dessert for our kids to help them count for what she recognized was a "surreal" experience for their father! A timeless gem in... More

The Tombs is a great local hangout with excellent food and an even better bar atmosphere. I have made it a point to go here during every visit to the city. The burgers are some of the best that I have found anywhere.

A great place to hang out and have a beer. On Wednesday night they do trivia night from 10:30-12. A lot of fun!
