Restaurant
“Lots of bar real estate if you like bar-seating. But also a large dining area with "fire place" if you're looking for a table-style dinner in a hip environment. Great beer, great burgers.--And lots of other choices if you don't like those. WALKING DISTANCE!”

Italian Restaurant

“It's an upscale bar / restaurant with a unique and cozy, intimate downstairs level. Sometimes a long wait, prices are a bit high for a small town, but it's busy and popular if you like a bustling atmosphere.”
