We enjoyed a burger and fried chicken with potatoe salad. The food was very good, service friendly, good craft beer and drink selection. Dinner is a reasonable price.

We've been twice now, once for breakfast, once for drinks and appies. Both times, I've been blown away by the quality of service and food. They have an excellent selection of local draft beers, and the food is top notch. Would highly recommend to anyone.

We had a nice dinner here. It was quiet enough that we could carry on a conversation and the staff was very attentive.

Yes, they certainly do serve bacon and eggs as well as many other choices. While I have never had breakfast there, if it is as good as their lunches it will be excellent.
