Bars & Taverns

Black Dog Smoke and Ale House is the most talked-about restaurant in town. Locals and visitors come here to enjoy great barbeque and craft brews in a warm and casual setting. Come early to get a seat, and even earlier if you want to try the burnt ends, which are made from the most tender part of the brisket – they usually sell out in two hours or less.
