Fodor's Review

Locals say this is one of the best places in town for live music. Jam, rock, folk and bluegrass bands rule the stage most nights. Beer lovers enjoy an almost overwhelming selection of 22 tap lines featuring largely local brews and a cooler with everything from Belgian Trappists to PBR tall boys. The full bar boasts 40 different bourbons and an unsurpassed whiskey menu. The chronically understaffed club serves a better-than-expected menu of sandwiches, salads and entrées including mac and cheese with apples and bacon.
