My first trip to the Happy Gnome was a good one on 8/27/2009. We sat in the bar and made an evening of it with friends. Lively atmosphere, but not loud or echoey. Service was attentive, but a little slow. Our waiter was quick to get you what you needed, once he came by the table. My glass sat empty for a few minutes between each round.

Beer selection was superb with 70 or so tap lines and a long list of bottles. All beers were fresh - no off flavors or evidence of neglected tap lines.

Food on the bar menu was good, but more expensive than you might pay elsewhere. We started with the antipasti plate followed by a chicken sandwich, pear and gorganzola pizza, and a couple of game burgers. All were well executed.

The prices will keep this place from being a regular stop, but it is a fine place and a good time was had by all in my group. Definitely worth a try, especially if you're a foodie.
