Unassuming little place that offers a great experience, especially if you're a bourbon lover or even just interested to try some different bourbons. This place has you covered with close to 300 to choose from!! Plus there are many other cocktail options if bourbon's not...More

The burgers and sandwiches were wonderful. The décor was interesting and different. We enjoyed the items on display. The waitress was great.

This unassuming little place turned out to be a hidden gem! Homemade food including a killer Reuben and from scratch soups! Good beer and great whiskey.

This is a unique place. We like to go for the burger and beer special. It's a good deal-$5.95 For a burger and a beer! The staff is good there too. We like to sit outside whenever possible. I would recommend checking them out.

Everything about this bar is awesome. It is a very comfortable and relaxed environment. Everyone is friendly, service is great, beers are cheap, food is solid and the whiskey menu is unreal.

Beef Barley Soup is good, as are the salads & sandwiches. Love their Hawaiian...I get mine on the Cranberry walnut bread usually grilled or toasted, stacked with Ham, a slice of pineapple and Swiss cheese.

This little spot has become one of the true hot spots in the Shores. Probably the best single malt scotch selections in the area. Sundays used to have a great Bloody Mary bar.

Besides that burger deal - they do have lunch specials and some dinner specials as well. Check the chalk board at the end of the bar in the middle of the restaurant. All sandwiches are piled high.
