Good food in a not so fancy bar/restaurant. We heard about it through DDD (Diners Drive-Ins and Dives). We really enjoyed the benedict with bbq pork on a corn jalapeno cake. Geocaching in the are too!

Good neighborhood bar with a decent variety of food and an impressive beer selection. The upstairs offers a nice area to host larger parties. Service is good. Limited parking.
