We found this place when we arrived in town for a visit. It was really nice. The staff was friendly and helpful. Good selection of local beers and great food. Prices were reasonable for a place like this. It should be in the $$$ zone....More

I would take my 7 year old and 11 year old grands for a special occasion, but they are very well behaved. I have not seen many children there.
