Wide selection of craft beers in the pub. Very nice selection on the menu. Beautiful old building with charm to spare. Go out of your way for their occasional live music nights!!

I am truly sorry that you came and we had closed early. First, I'm not sure where you saw we closed at 10, but we close at 8 Sunday through Thursday, and 9 on the weekends. This would be our late fall/ winter/ spring schedule....More

It wouldn't be a trip to the North Shore without eating breakfast at Cascade. I didn't get in for Lunch or Dinner this trip, but the breakfasts are always excellent.
