“We are very excited to bring our version of Craft Food and a nice selection of 30 Craft Beers on Tap to the local community,” Keith Dawson wrote.

“Chef Nicole is already working on new creative dishes so please keep looking for the sign to say ‘NOW OPEN’. We are hoping that happens sometime in June.”

The dining room has been totally remodeled. Sectional seating has been removed.
