What do you want more? Good food, love music, great beer for a decent price. Service was perfect! Had the steak dinner and was really tasty. They have beer tasting plates with 4 different local beers. I really recommend this bar for dinner and drinks.

My daughter and I ate dinner here, and the food was surprisingly good. Prices were reasonable as well. Much more than basic bar food, the menu included several interesting salads and pizzas, as well as main courses. My halibut was quite good.
