Met a few friends here for drinks. Nice patio seating and casual vibe. Owners and bartenders were very friendly. Nothing fancy, just consistent, good experience.

A non-smoking bar with a NY atmosphere and no Bud Light? Yep, there's one bar and it's this one. I like to sit out back in the heat of summer and enjoy the fans and the shade, but there's great cool respite indoors, where the...More

It's a great small bar with a daily selection of Draft beer. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth finding.
