Great staff and fair prices. There are tons of pictures to look at on the walls. I highly recommend that you look, and ask questions about any unique picture that you see. Most of them are local stories which area both amazing and funny.

Great local bar!! Our bar tender was friendly and made us feel right at home! Walls are covered with old pictures of fisherman and fishing boats. Has its own liquor store attached to the bar. Nice place to have a drink!
