  • The biscuits here are just too good.
  • Enjoy dinner at the same restaurant Ernest Hemingway used to enjoy on a frequent basis!
  • This bar is full of douchey types that are the sloppy second leftovers of an ivy league town. If you think about coming here please stab yourself in the eye or just kill yourself.
  • Known as The Annex back in Hemingway's day, this used to be an old billiads hall where Hemingway enjoyed a drink or two.
  • Hemingway wrote his first books hanging out here. He used to watch bare knuckle boxing in the park next to the restaurant. The rest is history.
  • Salmon BLT. Cannot go wrong!
  • Short's "Hanging Frank" IPA on draft, named after one of the site's original owners. Good Saturday night live music.
  • Great burgers and pasta choices! Wonderful service and I love karaoke nights
  • FYI BEER SNOBS... they currently have Founders KBS on tap, hurry while it lasts. While you're there, try the Four Cheese Penne, yum!
  • Family Style Dinner Specials on Wednesday and Thursday. We'll be back to try it out.
  • Hemingway hung out here. Short's makes a great IPA just for this restaurant. Biscuit, BBQ chips, and salmon BLT were all fantastic. You can't go wrong here!
  • I travel all the time for work this restaurant has the best service and food that I've ever had
  • This use to be Hemingway's hang out!
  • Can't get much better than $2 Drafts on Tuesday Nights
  • The biscuits and flank steak are dynamite!
  • Crab dip and pork tacos all day - solid beer selection in a great old speakeasy from 1888
  • My wife had the perch (extremely good) and I had the jambalaya (not bad). Service was good. I'd visit this establishment again
  • I don't leave tips often, but the experience here was pretty bad. Virtually no greeting from the two hostesses. The menu wasn't that impressive, although our waiter was quite nice. Poorly cooked food
  • Half soup half sandwich is great.
  • The human biscuit treats are wonderful. Food is always tastey.
