It feels like the heart of the neighborhood, with a joyful noise and happy vibe emanating from its doors almost every night. This family-owned place is rather simple: exposed brick and wood floors, four-top tables, pool tables and a stretch of bar. And it’s truly a place where “everybody knows your name”; every time we’ve gone in, we’ve known someone there. Go early for a primo seat on either the front or back porch. Take your laptop and connect to the Wi-Fi service, so you can read your e-mail along with the beer list.
