Love the atmosphere: casual, friendly and a nice sense of community....the feel of Cheers:) We had several appetizers - wings, homemade mozzarella sticks with marinara and perfectly cooked burgers. Good selections of craft beers too. SERVICE WAS FANTASTIC.

Lively pub with impeccable service and tasty food. Don't let the crowd intimidate you. All the menu items are made to order. The vegetable plate is always a work of art.
