Stopped in during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Nice little place with plenty of drink options and a decent menu of typical bar food but there is something for everyone. The staff was friendly and service was decent. It's even dog friendly out on the deck....More

This bar offers half prices appetizers during their happy hour. I got Old Bay steamed shrimp and nachos that were delicious. The nacho chips seemed home made. The servers and locals were super friendly.
