I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food at Roots & Revelry. The building was built in 1929. Pretty renovations to the hotel and the pork chop was yummy. It's a little tricky to get upstairs- they have a sign painted on the wall to...More

On a tip from a local friend, we went to this restaurant downtown. Valet parking is a little interesting, as the sign does not reflect the restaurant's name. It worked, nonetheless. The dining room is in the old ballroom of the second floor of the...More
