Local cool hangout. Mostly older local drunks. Very small inside and very small outside. As for the food if you like bar food, that's what you get

Ate here several times. The bar was not the greatest but the food was really good! Not standard bar fare. There is a large outdoor eating area so if weather permits, would recommend sitting outside.
