New American Restaurant

“For a special night out and one of the best views in the city, check out Fahrenheit. Friendly atmosphere, local cuisine with vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Ask for a table next to the windows and wait outside on the balcony on a clear night:) It's about an 8-minute ride/drive or a 35-minute walk.”

Irish Pub
$$
“Irish pub with amazing food!! I have had every single item on the menu 😱! My faves are the grilled cheese with bacon and tomato soup (simple but delish), the burger and fries, the green beans, the harvest salad and the sliders. The shepherds pie and pork and beans are my fave Irish dishes on the menu. They also surprisingly have a nice wine list for a pub. If you stay awhile it turns into a bar scene and either had a DJ, small band or the bartenders rock their own playlists.”
