Fast friendly service! Nice atmosphere, sort of colonial. Yummy beer cheese soup. This month it’s made with a pepper-jack cheese, so tangy heat. They serve it with pretzels but would love a crusty piece of bread (personal taste). Server TJ was way helpful and efficient....More

My first visit to this eatery. From the looks of the outside, it appears tiny; however, that is wrong. Plenty of room, wonderful decor and the food/service were impeccable. You must try the beer sampler for sure!

Great pub atmosphere. Very good food, large portions. We've liked everything on the menu - but two of our favorites are mussels in heavy cream sauce and sweet potato fries. Music and loud conversations on weekend nights.

Great bar and restaurant with local hand made beer. Selection changes daily. Live music all the time with local bands. Great old and quaint building on water street. Love this place.
