They have really done a nice job on this old building...It used to be a tough and tumble bar with pool tables. Lots of selections reasonably priced. Good Service.....

Hello Richard, thanks for the feedback. Yes indeed this used to be a "tough and tumble bar" back in the 60's when it was called the Rustic Tavern. If these walls could talk! Hope to see you soon.
