I was told about this place from a friend and he could not have been more right about this place. We can not wait to return for dinner. The cocktails were excellent and we had the rillete appetizer and it was sensational. Returning for sure.

This was our 2nd visit since 2015, and the quality was still there and the food and staff fantastic. Everything we had tasted great, the deviled eggs and pate are exceptional. Owner/manager was so friendly. Excellent beer choices. Good value too!
