Love this small local spot to try different selection. Great food to boot always going back

Ever enter a place of business and feel that maybe you're an inconvenience? An interruption? That your money and business was in no way wanted?
That would define the Twisted Elm. A sourpuss barmaid never said a single word in almost ten minutes. She seemed to be having yet another shitty day on earth, and appeared stressed in pouring two glasses of wine for the only two other customers yesterday evening.
This is the second and last time I've attempted to have a pint here. A shame, and if I had an investment in this joint, I'd get a ride to the George Washington Bridge and take a leap.
Avoid this disappointment.

New kid on the block. Limited selection of beers but they were ordering more while I was there so it can only get better. Nothing exciting on tap when I was there (a Tuesday afternoon) but I was told that they change beers frequently. Strangely, I'd swear that I was told they had no bottled beer but I may be wrong. I had Sam Adams Chocolate Bock and it was served at perfect temperature. As for the food, I'd recommend the buffalo wings and they have a mac & cheese that rocks the house. Other menu items I saw being served looked first rate and I am looking forward to going back to try them.
I get the impression that The Twisted Elm Tavern is a work in progress but their attention to details will give us a work of art. Hopefully, they will be here to stay.
