A bar turned into a brew pub with occasional tasting festivals and nightly live music, the Bistro is open morning to night serving excellent bar and grill food. Next door to an independent bookstore worth a visit.

Had dinner here a few of times. First time it was ok, the next visits were not so good. Maybe there was a different chef. The place is a little dark and dreary looking. Will not be back.

Don't bother, save yourself the disappointment. Relatively high price to get service that was mediocre. Food was blaugh and the portion was small. There are too many other decent places to eat near here to waste your time.

My companion and I dined here only because of what appeared to be a great deal from a major national coupon service which offered a three-course dinner with champagne with a retail value of over $100 for only $49. The restaurant is only a few...More

First of all, don't expect to eat at the Bistro, at least at 9pm on a weeknight. I'm not sure they even have a kitchen. What the "joint" has are friendly customers, live music, and a great choice of beers. This is a local bar,...More
