We sat on the patio and had a nice view of this quaint town. I had fish and chips and it was ok. Others had penne pasta and the Mac n cheese which they said were awesome, as well as the chowder.

Stopped for lunch before learning how to fly flsh. Service was quick and friendly thanks to Lauren. We had a burger (quite good) and a gyros wrap (also very good). Simple and excellent food. Low to moderate prices.

Great way to relax sitting by the river sipping a cocktail with friends. Waitstaff is attentive and informed. Food is so-so but atmosphere and pricing make this a favorite place to take friends.

We stopped in for happy hour on our first night in town. The building is very attractive with a patio above the Frying Pan River. It was a bit windy so we decided to have our drinks at a table near the bar. After reviewing...More
