Enjoyed a half sandwich and hard cider here. The sandwich was delicious because of the sweet potato bread...the cider was okay...but that's personal taste. The donuts are just okay. But I enjoyed cider tasting. Staff was friendly.

They had fair BBQ, a nice back porch seating area, and used to have paint and sips but I just went by this place the other day and now it's out of business.

Visit this establishment when you get a chance. The menu is revolving and the cider selection is extensive. Try their southern style specials.

Meh. Depressing interior. The ribs were OK, the bean burger was not delicious. Not a great selection of beers. Seemed like more of a local place than a tourist destination.

Outside weeds we growing everywhere and trash was on the porch. Coming in the door the smell of mildew was our next clue of things to come. We stopped at the bar for a drink, but didn't order dinner after seeing the general unkept conditions....More
