Their Mac n cheese is fantastic and there are plenty of beers on tab. Great find close to our hotel. Little bit loud at night but great atmosphere.

The food here is really great, atmosphere casual and fun, service fine. You can sit outside on picnic tables with your dog (!) or go inside for a cozy atmosphere. Mussels and frites are a great bet here.

Stopped by on a Saturday afternoon. Great beer selection and the lunch menu was terrific...a little something for everyone. Everything was fresh and homemade (even the buffalo sauce!) Highly recommend you give this place a try if you are looking for a laid back atmosphere...More
