I love how small and personable it was. All the workers were extremely friendly. The food was good too and they have a variety of drinks and we got to sit right by the window and had a nice view of the river.

Amazing drinks and delicious food. Staff was friendly and the live music was great. You do have to make reservations since it is a small place.

I do not know. We were only there for a single day. We bought alcohol in town and enjoyed the beer recommended by the bar tender. I couldn't tell you what we drank because the avocado was simply delicious!
