“One of my locally owned favorites - the bar has full food service also, if you don't want a quiet sit down dinner. They also have live music in the bar every Tuesday night starting at 6 PM until 9 PM. Local musicians are scheduled in advance and it's local music at its best. In warmer months, their patio is one of the best in the area.”
