Solid bar menu and lots of good food choices. The outdoor patio has a great atmosphere and is perfect for spending a summer evening with friends. Unexpectedly nice compared to what you see on the outside.

One of the best spots to relax with anyone. They have the largest selection on craft whiskey and gin I have seen. They also have a great selection of craft beers primarily in bottle.

We have eaten here many times, and have never been disappointed. During the warm spring and summer days, lunch in the courtyard area is really nice. When my family is in town visiting, one place they always go for drinks and lunch.

Great place for Food and drinks in an historic building. Especially nice to sit in the outdoor courtyard when weather permits. My husband appreciates the extensive selection of whiskeys and knowledgeable bartenders.
