Don’t miss a chance to eat here. Typical bar food with a twist. They also have a terrific and varying lunch menu. The bar is a super friendly place. Pretty much can’t miss going to the Hiawatha

Elegant dining in this hidden gem. Great food. 5 of us all had something different and everything was great. Sunday brunch with Mimosas is worth it.
