This place is outstanding. They have phenomenal beers and the kitchen is new england mixed with southern. They have fantastic late night snackability as well and they stay open late. I was there for a wedding but it seemed to be a popular local spot as well. Get the cornbread, thank me later.

I had the four ounce mini burger with fries which I enjoyed. The menu was not too pricey. There is a good selection of beer.

The family and I stopped in on our way out Salem. The beer was good but a bit pricey. The food was so-so and we waited a long time for our dessert.
