Large, varied menu of food, drink, craft beers, wines, etc. Food menu with entrees and grill good, appetizers. Food was excellent, large portions, well worth the price. Right in the middle of downtown.

My wife and I came in for early dinner. Loved the building. Waiter great and the perch was excellent. My wife had a chicken and bacon sandwich which she enjoyed. Come early as they are always busy. Best tourist dinning in the area

We tried the onion rings which were good. The Thai chicken linguini was to die for! Large enough for two. The Brewmaster burger was nothing to write home about. Our server was great!
