    Always carrying lots of local brews on tap like Baxter & Allegash. Try the Stowaway IPA when available, It's even better on tap than in the can!

    Easter Sunday 2013 is the final day Empire Dine and Dance will be open. I really hope I am the final mayor.

    I sat and ate at the bar downstairs on a Friday @ 6:30 sadly had to compete for space with some staff stuffing their faces with chicken wings within 2 feet of me. Get professional or lose my business.

    Go on Thursdays during the sing along piano bar. Simply dashing!
