Enjoyed the hush puppies and the raspberry jalapeño dip that came with. Overall the menu had a good selection and offered a good variety of beer. They also serve coffee with a good variety of flavored mix-ins but I didn't try any.

Needed a local place to stop late lunch and happened across The Vault. What a pleasant find! The Jalapeno Popper Burger was interesting! I recommend stopping by.

Great place for homemade nachos, darts, and a pool table. Spent many Wednesday night's hanging out here. Bartender, waitress and general super and smiley Courtney is just the best.
