We enjoyed a late dinner on the outside bar. Food and service was good. Nice atmosphere and close to our hotel at the Edgewater Lodge.

Family owned neighborhood pub. Lots of TVs, inside and outside seating. Beer was ice cold, service by Jen and Dee was outstanding. The blackened wings are delicious.
