Live music every night. GREAT music to boot. The whole place has such a cool vibe. It's bar menu food that is on the better side, but the music makes it great. The bar has a great variety of beer.

Service was wonderful, food was absolutely delicious, especially the donut wings. And their homemade lemonade is quite the treat.

I noticed this restaurant on Swagbucks. The burgers were of gourmet quality at a fraction of the cost. I had the Plain Jane Chicken patty ($10.25) and hubs had the Mushroom w/American cheese ($10.95). We're definitely coming back to this place in the near future.

We're the new tavern here, but we bring with us all the character of our past experiences in the food and music industry. We wanted to create a place where musicians, food and drink enthusiasts and the community could all come together. A bar is only as lively as it's patrons, and we think we've perfected the perfect place to meet new people, bond with old ones, and just in general have a great time.
