A great location but not very well organized. Small bar upstairs, main floor has dining and downstairs is a fireplace with minimal furniture for waiting. Food was delicious!!

Fantastic food, excellent beer selection, and fantastic waitstaff make this place an absolute favorite! Well worth the side trip up the mountain for a great time! Best burgers, wings, and triple chocolate dessert! Joy our server was beyond kind, funny and accommodating! Cannot wait to go back!

My wife and I hosted our daughters wedding here in November and while visiting the area in December decided to have dinner at Shovel Handle Pub. Food was great, staff attentive and the beer was cold.
