One of the better beer bars in town, Monk’s Kettle is always in our rotation. And not just for drinking. The corner spot has lots of outdoor tables, a cozy vibe inside that’s perfect for foggy nights, and a beer list that would make Pliny the Younger jump for joy. If you get that joke, you will be obsessed with this place. The pub food is strong - especially the fries and burger.
