We stopped in for a quiet local beer or two, which were very nice, and ended staying for a light meal. As with the drinks the food was very pleasant. We ordered several dishes and shared which was nice and fun as well. The walls...More

This is the oldest bar in the town. The staff are friendly and the food is good. Prices are reasonable as well. We had lunch here.

We stopped for food on a cold, wet day. The soup was on the menu as "seafood" but was mostly squid. The service was off-handed and really this place doesn't really deserve any higher than a POOR rating - especially when compared to other places...More
