Chris Shepherd's bar-forward, downtown restaurant serves area residents and visitors with a menu of classic American fare. Think roast chicken, raw oysters, and an epic, double patty cheeseburger that's topped with Swiss cheese, horseradish sauce, seared mushrooms, and fried onion strings. Carefully executed craft cocktails and a tidy wine list mean diners can settle in at the bar for a snack or linger over a meal.
