It was the 2nd stop on our pub tour - such a warm, cozy spot. The view of the lake, walking in, was lovely. The beers were good, we had some appetizers from the food truck (yum) and the free popcorn was perfect!!!

Nice atmosphere. Sunday afternoon and they were quite busy. Chairs are very heavy and very tall. Beer was very good. Bartenders were friendly. It was too cold for outdoor seating so not sure how that is.
