Checked this place out a few days after they reopened from the remodeling. I always liked it before, but was amazed at the additional area they opened up. The bar is about eight feet longer, and they added a few booths.

The two hundered year old building has a very comforting feel. The hardwood floors and rich dark colored wood. Dining room area is nicely wamred by two fireplaces.

The food is fantastic. They offer a few wing selections which are their best sellers. I recommend the dirt wings. Many other appetizers, entrees and sandwiches are just as good.

The beer selection is quite nice. They rotate their bottle selection to match the season. IPA's in summer, Octoberfest...self explanatory, etc. They carry a dozen tap beers, but mostly macros. My one reservation is seasonal bottles run about a dollar more per bottle then other bars.

Service at the bar is quite quick, however, if you are at a table in the lounge or the dinning room, you get only average service. Waitstaff will get you what you need from the kitchen, but not be as attentive to empty glasses.

Overall a definite winner in an area of chain food and family bars. Come for the beer selection and wings, and I promise you will find yourself coming back to get take out wing buckets for home gatherings. You will also like to stop in every few weeks to check out beer changes.
