We visited several times as we were visiting there. Loved it. Loved the music, the food, the staff. And I never knew there was a restaurant upstairs????

The downstairs bar has anything you want to drink and an extensive bar menu. Restaurant upstairs has a brader menu. Local music most nights in the bar. Friendly staff
