The waitress we had was very nice. The burger is definitely my favorite thing on the menu. If you're lucky, you can get a brownie sundae for dessert!

This bar sits in a historic building in the heart of Hightstown adjacent to lake and dam. Typical bar food mixed with surprisingly excellent specials. Rice pudding is the best. Patio fills up quickly in good weather. Service can be slow when packed.

Don't know about mixed drinks. We just ordered beer on tap which is very reasonable. I would complain to the management that you would like to see mixed drinks on the menu along with listed prices. They may not realize... More
