We had a great food experience here and while I don't drink beer, my husband does. He tried some he hadn't had before and loved them all. The service was great too even though they were busy. This will be a regular spot for us.

No reservations, but lots of seating for waiting and you can have a drink while you wait. And you are seated in the shade where its a balmy 75 degrees... what's not to like? Inside the bar is open seating. Seats at the bar... More
