We went there and the sign is gone, one placard saying it was closed and another placard saying Help Wanted in all positions. Looked like workers were doing renovations. My guess is that it may reopen but maybe new ownership and/or new name.

Nice looking old tavern. My hubby and son had the brisket sandwich and fries and enjoyed them. My daughter in law had a burger and fries. The burger appeared to be very over cooked on one side. I had the "meaty" chili which tasty, should have been called chili with an essence of meat. It definitely was Not meaty. The... More

We went to the Springs to see a 7pm movie. Two of us were seated around 6pm and waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Our server took our drink order and came back with our beverages in a timely manner. The rest of our small group arrived shortly afterwards. After waiting patiently for 15 minutes, I went... More

We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. They will text you when your table is ready while you shop. My wife and I ordered a pizza and out daughter ordered a Ruben and her daughter got a grilled cheese. After an excessively long wait for the food our pizza arrived, not cold but not hot either....

Nice little tavern, cool decor, nice staff. Giving 3 stars because of the food. Decent bar food at best. Had the brisket sandwich, majorly lacking in the flavor. Pizza might be good tho. Saw they had a brick oven so that may be worth a try! Yellowsprings seems to be a hard place to find really good food.

The best place in Yellow Springs for a beer. Great atmosphere. Locals and older students, sometimes professors. Nothing fancy, just a great place to sit down and relax after a hard day of studying, teaching, working, etc.

I Fogt to take the pic before adding catsup and taking a bite of the sandwich. Willpower was low because it looked and smelled so good! The brisket was delish! A slightly smokey flavor and super tender. I split that with my mother and had half of her fish sandwich in exchange. We agreed that the brisket was better. The... More

We saw the sign & stopped in for a cold one....what a great place! It was originally built in 1827. The log cabin is still there. We tried a few of their special beers. The Mad Tree Happy Amber had a nice citrus taste. We also tried the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Pumpkin Ale....had a nice Bourbon taste with a pumpkin... More
