They have a tomato dill soup on special that is amazing! Also, love their pretzel bites, and the shrimp and grits. A great place to enjoy good food and different beers.

This is the quintessential home town bar that you want to share with your out of town visitors. Great atmosphere, food and friends. Come for a beer live with a memory.
