We used the rating sites to find a spot for lunch on our way into town. This place did not disappoint. The dip was excellent, and they had a good variety of Beers. Our group had a great time and the food was excellent.

Construction caused a nearby restauurant to be closed so we decided on this one. We were really impressed! Gourmet menu, although limited, perfect service by Miranda, and a really awesome beer selection. I tried an IPA recommended by Miranda which hit the spot. We even...More
