First and foremost, this is a community gathering place where everyone feels welcome.
Maple-bourbon gastrique Chicken and Waffles elevates a homey dish to haute cuisine. Crispy fried buttermilk-marinated chicken resting atop a scratch-made buttermilk waffle gets a drizzle of sweetly decadent bourbon-laced syrup. A side of brown butter chicken gravy completes this comforting winter feature. Of course, the chefs take culinary inspiration from diverse spirits: The seasonal menu encompasses such dishes as Moonshine Pasta Bolognese, Baked Ale Mac & Cheese, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and a Peppercorn Whiskey Compound Butter that adorns New York Strip Steak.
For a novel drink pairing, try an owner-recommended Spiced Old Fashioned, made with aromatic house-infused bourbon.
FORK IT OVER
A bite of Tiny Stout Brownie Sundae delivers multi-faceted indulgence. An intensely dark chocolate brownie, fortified with Weyerbacher Brewing’s robust imperial stout, partners with vanilla ice cream, salted caramel sauce, bourbon chocolate syrup, and a cloud of whipped cream. Bliss.
Rustic details—wooden barrels, exposed brick walls, chalkboard signs—set a casually refined stage for socializing. Generous seating at the wrap-around bar makes this a popular place for informal dining, and garage doors serving as an indoor-outdoor interface open in warm weather for fresh air and expanded seating. The spacious dining room is populated with patrons of all ages, from seniors to children.
WHAT’S THE 411?
Along with a kitchen that takes pride in well-crafted American fare, the bar is distinguished by dozens of rotating crafts that highlight regional craft brews, local wines on-tap from the Easton Wine Project, and a stellar lineup of 60-plus whiskey and bourbon varieties. Budding whiskey connoisseurs can take advantage of trying unique spirits that might cost $400 a bottle to buy.
Stop by on a Friday evening when live music further energizes the bar’s lively social scene.
