This is quickly becoming one of my new favorite neighborhood spots.

Unique pub-fare-with-a-conscience as most of the ingredients are locally grown ("local" is the new "organic", dont'cha know). The ketchup and mustard are each great and are housemade! (That's right, I just raved about condiments, but there really hasn't been much innovation here well, since, the first 56 varieties were introduced.)

As an a-quadro-pedi-tarian (I don't eat anything that walks on four legs), I find the menu to be a bit limited, but it's still got some good items for me to enjoy (the portobello mushroom sandwich, onion rings are both noteworthy and tasty!) Sorry I can't review the beef, but I bet some other reviewers have that well-covered.

Overall it's a smidge pricey but well worth a visit, espeically with happy hour specials on their unique selection of mostly local draft brews from 5:30 to 7:30pm.

One small nit: the cheese board wasn't that great; one of the cheeses they served on a particular visit had fennel or something, not good. And it seemed smallish portions of each cheese. However the server brought us some extra bread which was great, so that made up for it.

Great outdoor patio, dog friendly, knowledgeable and friendly (but not overbearing) staff.

Make it part of your weekly ritual! (Sorry, couldn't resist, you may throw your locally grown tomatoes now).
