GREAT menu, fantastic service and jazz 4 nights a week. This is our go to every time we have friends visit from out of town or when we need our Murry's fix, which is often. :) They are extremely popular so you may have to enjoy an outstanding cocktail while you wait or sneak in ahead of the crowd.

Essentials
3 minute drive from the house and a great selection of goodies for your stay. They also boast a rockin' liquor, wine and beer department. Try a local Bur Oak beer if you are into craft brews. Our favorite is the Big Tree IPA and the Lily Ale. You can even shop with a wine, beer or coffee from the bar!
