Unfortunately this restaurant recently CLOSED IT'S DOORS. Sad to see it go. Was a lovely spot in the newly renovated downtown which is attracting more and more people to the area. They did a great job and had lovely outdoor seating.More

Thank you for your kind words and for your patronage. We tried very, very hard to make the Bistro a welcome stop for folks on Downtown Main Street. Happy you had a good time. Don't forget to patronize small, locally owned restaurants. They face a...More

Sadly, this restaurant closed for business two weeks ago. The owner cited financial reasons including the raising of the minimum wage, the number of other places serving craft beers in the area and the modernization of the downtown area. Specifically, too few businesses that meet...More

Thanks for your kind words. Keeping the restaurant open in a very tough economic environment was a challenge that we ultimately could not overcome. We feel that we opened the restaurant about two years before Downtown was ready for it. Some new restaurants will be...More

It was a green chile cheddar bratwurst, one of our most popular brats, made in-house. It bothers me that you suggest it was rotten. It was made two days before and was not rotten. This hurts our reputation. We have never sickened anyone in the...More

Nice restaurant in the downtown area. Menu selection is very good. Beer and wines are also different from the regular "run of the mill" selections.

Stopped by for lunch on Saturday. Place wasn't busy. Had the onion soup which was short on flavor and long on pepper. Her salad was uninteresting and a bit wilted. Both of our sandwiches left little impression. Nice beer list though.
