Most people would not know this restaurant is there as you have to go through a doorway and then down stairs but it is worth it. This has been here for a lot of years but the good food and service remains the same. Highly recommend going there.

While visiting family in the area, we ate supper here. The staff was nice and we all enjoyed our meals and the service was great too. I had a chicken cutlet dinner very juicy and delicious and the rest of our group were very empreesed by their meals as well.

If you want good food and are okay with laid-back service, this is the place. The menu is quite varied, and the restaurant seems to be popular with the locals. Desserts are plentiful and most are homemade, so save some room for that if you like dessert at all. Prices are reasonable.

We stopped and grabbed a beer while waiting for our Uber drive to come pick us up. It is a really cool restaurant down in the basement. We didn't eat but it was starting to get busy on a Friday evening. It seems to be very popular with the locals.

Located below street level, the rock walls, wooden bar, and fixtures lend the bar a cozy feel. Pop in for a hearty bite to eat or a cold drink with friends. The Court House Exchange serves some of the best sandwiches in town. Try our burgers & fries, the fried chicken platter, or a hefty pork tenderloin.
