My wife got pork tacos, I got fish & chips, both were great. Good service especially for a large party. Food is always good whenever we go there.

Beautiful old building with restaurant and bar makes a great lunch spot, or hangout with friends! We had lunch there and loved the food, the drinks, and the friendliness of the bartender and waitress.

Stopped in for a couple of drinks! Enjoyed the selection of whiskeys and hard cider! Old world bar and quaint feel. Looked like they served late night food as well! Definitely would come back and try the food.
