Step back into spooky 18th-century New England with this gastropub, which evokes a Colonial tavern via flaming lanterns, exposed wood beams and comfort grub. Dishes encourage eating with your hands: Fried chicken breast is drizzled with honey and baby back ribs are glazed with an apple-cinnamon sauce. Twenty-five taps dispense heavy brews like Keegan's Mother's Milk and Sixpoint Diesel Stout. For a stiffer drink, sample twists on classic cocktails, such as a Corpse Reviver, made with Four Roses bourbon instead of the traditional gin, and a Manhattan accented with Italian amari Averna and Fernet.

Totally would've missed this bar if I hadn't noticed the castle-like building walking down the street. Good music, not crowded for a Friday night. Great for a group of friends who wants easy access to the bar but also tables to sit and chill at.
