Very tasty sandwiches, salads and more. Pretzel burgers a hit with kids. Appetizers like nachos on homemade chips also excellent. Appetizer prices a bit high. Great craft beer selection too. Worth a return trip.

Although it is owned by the same owners as the Famished Frog in Morristown, it is totally different. While it appears extremely inviting, first timers are made to feel uncomfortable. As welcoming as the people at the Famished Frog are, this bartender was the exact...More
