This place makes the claim that it’s the oldest bar in town, and from the solid menu that ranges from nachos and crispy calamari to Southern comfort food like boiled peanuts, deviled eggs, and cornbread-crusted trout to the children’s play nook, we can see why. It’s a great spot to bring literally anyone for a burger and a beer.
