The beer is cold & the sandwiches are average. It is a local watering hole & everyone is nice. It is called a restaurant but in all actuality........it is just a hangout bar.

This little place is a great find that I would not have found without signing up for a ghost hunt with the Paranormal 911 group that does tours of this place and Central House in Napoleon. We arrived early and ate dinner there. Bonaparte's has...More
