Enjoyed the American Grilled Cheese that comes with bacon and tomato as well as the slat & pepper kettle chips. Served on good Texas toast. Also had the pork BBQ quesida appetizer which was fine. Little loud on the C&W music. Amanda was most helpful.

Located in the 'historic' area this is a good place to sit, drink and snack. Busy, noisy, and full of life. Good selection of beers; table and bar seating; pool table; small patio outside. Short walk to the water.

What a nifty little bar. We dined at a cute little outside table & served by energetic, smiling, adorable Alexis. The veggie panini was to die for. A nice view of the river was included. We will be back often... & will ask for Alexis.
