Food Menu

We take as much pride in our food as we do in our beers. Chef/owner Chris Shepherd puts his twist on classic bar food--PB&J Wings, chicken fried steak, tacos made with half a pig head (you read that right).  Even our burger, the Cease and Desist, has made national news. Everything is made from scratch.  

“Only the pure in heart can make a good soup.” - Ludwig van Beethoven. He was deaf.
