Cool place in terms of layout and decor. Went for Saturday lunch. Menu sounded great. Food quality was good, not great. Food prep was fair/good. Items were not terribly fresh. Wasn’t bad but not what one would expect in such a nice town.

This surprisingly large bar has an adequate menu, excellent beer selection and above par cocktails. The atmosphere is a bit boisterous and the crowd a bit young but the service was good and the food was, if not inventive, at least quality.
