“Commonwealth is our favorite bar/mini bites restaurant downtown. They offer 10 to 20 local, craft beers on tap and some very tasty bar snacks. They always seem to be busy on the weekends but are usually quick to serve. Not very expensive for a bar and the atmosphere is great with the outdoor seating area being great in the summer months. They recently started doing Sunday brunch as well!”
