Love the wings and the different grilled cheese sandwiches, lots of other unique food too. Wings are brined and baked, very tasty and tender. There's almost always some live music and excellent beer and food specials. Small place with very competent help but usually not...More

Stopped in for a drink and a snack during the Fire and Ice Festival. Bacon wrapped jalepeno poppers were amazing as were the drinks and service. Can't wait to go back next weekend for my birthday!!

This restaurant has an unusual menu of really creative foods but it is very loud. You cannot have a conversation over the band. It's a small place so something a bit more sedate may encourage a repeat visit but if the music is too loud...More

A bike ride and antiquing led us to the quiet corner of CT. But the upbeat Irish music drew us into this cute little spot for a cold beer. With live, local music featured regularly (various genres), it's such a fun place to try a...More
