We stopped in for appetizers and drinks. This is a great spot and next time we will come back to try more from the menu. We had the cauliflower appetizer and the macaroni and cheese. Both were delicious. Our drinks were great and we really...More

Average American bar but with more whiskey choices than you can likely handle! They have wonderful signature cocktails as well, give the menu a once over and try something you've never had before!
