We just stopped in for a pint of cider, but the atmosphere was enjoyable and the staff was friendly. We got the fried pork rinds and they were still sizzling when served.

Had lunch here with the family. Sat at the outside bar table that overlooks the water. Excellent view! Had cheese sticks (best ever), and burgers. The 🍟 were hand cut shoe string style and excellent. Huge local beer selection.
