“My favorite breakfast and coffee spot. They also have a great beer and wine selection. If you are in town on a Tuesday night definitely check out their open mic at 7pm. Also lots of amazing bands play here. Feel free to ask me if anyone is playing while you are in town and I'll let you know. ”

“Hearty American-style Italian! I like eating here for "things smothered in hot cheese" type pasta, but they also do a really good blackened or cedar-plank salmon. The bar/lounge area is lively, and the bartenders here have a tendency to pour a little strong. TVs tuned to sports throughout the bar, and a "wine-down Wednesday" special that is excellent for a mid-week break.”

“Best burger you’ll ever have a bring three friends because you can split it four ways that’s how big it is! Fries are delicious and the beers are cold!”

“Hogan's is a pretty special spot. It's a dive bar in all the good meanings of the phrase - tiny, friendly, welcoming, a little rough around the edges, live music from around the area on the weekends. The pub recently changed hands - the old owner retiring and selling on to everyone's favorite bartender, Skate. There's been some remodeling of restrooms, etc since which have been nice. But Skate and family have kept the laid-back vibe and good selection of beer/microbrews, and liquors, as well as the better-than-average-bar kitchen menu which include things like bite-size steak, scrumptious battered onion rings, reliably excellent burgers. Check their FB for theme nights and music.”

“A favorite for a valley classic: bite-size steak. Bojack's is *one* of the (hotly-contested) originators of this locally, but they definitely have one of the better claims and a very good recipe. They do delicious spaghetti and meatballs as well, and extremely generous portion sizes. The restaurant is downstairs under the bar in historic Morgan's Alley on Main St.”

American Restaurant

“This small restaurant at the top of the Thain Grd hill gets my recommend for two things and two things only: the burgers themselves and the selection of beer on-tap. Those two things are high quality and entirely worth the drive up the hill by themselves! But the rest of the menu is pretty "eh," fair warning.”

Steakhouse
$$$$
“The bar area here is very much the best thing! As a steak place they are only just ...fine. Good, but not anything special. But the bar area is really a delight. All heavy wood and a big riverstone fireplace - very grownup cowboy style indoors. And in summer they are far enough up the hill that their patio offers a very, very good view over the whole confluence. No better place for a sunset. An excellent place for a classy date, or a work meeting, or just a relaxing drink.”
