We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table. They will text you when your table is ready while you shop. My wife and I ordered a pizza and out daughter ordered a Ruben and her daughter got a grilled cheese. After an excessively long wait for the food our pizza arrived, not cold but not hot either....

Nice little tavern, cool decor, nice staff. Giving 3 stars because of the food. Decent bar food at best. Had the brisket sandwich, majorly lacking in the flavor. Pizza might be good tho. Saw they had a brick oven so that may be worth a try! Yellowsprings seems to be a hard place to find really good food.

The best place in Yellow Springs for a beer. Great atmosphere. Locals and older students, sometimes professors. Nothing fancy, just a great place to sit down and relax after a hard day of studying, teaching, working, etc.

I Fogt to take the pic before adding catsup and taking a bite of the sandwich. Willpower was low because it looked and smelled so good! The brisket was delish! A slightly smokey flavor and super tender. I split that with my mother and had half of her fish sandwich in exchange. We agreed that the brisket was better. The... More

We saw the sign & stopped in for a cold one....what a great place! It was originally built in 1827. The log cabin is still there. We tried a few of their special beers. The Mad Tree Happy Amber had a nice citrus taste. We also tried the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Pumpkin Ale....had a nice Bourbon taste with a pumpkin... More

Stopped in on a busy Saturday. Received friendly service and our special orders as requested a sin a timely manner. (Reuben sandwich with no bread or dressing, salad with only the ingredients requested). The menu is limited, but enough items to satisfy our group.

We went here twice. The first time we also ate dinner. They have an excellent pesto toasted cheese sandwich! We sat at the bar for beers and on the patio to eat. The only complain the first time was that the waitresses all gathered by the bar to talk and laugh - making a lot of noise. This did not... More

The building is a must see if you are in Yellow Springs. The menu is very limited and the wait is usually long. However, the food is always good. There is also a smoking/drinking patio that is wonderful is you want to people watch while having a drink.
