    Awesome patio spot in the summer, great for early Saturday afternoons. Love the grilled cheese, every single one is amazing! Try a few during happy hour when they're $5 each

    Get the Kings County whiskey - it's local. Salona grilled cheese is a must! It has jalapeño jack, hot sauce, tomatoes & cilantro on sourdough. Bread is from Orwasher's, cheese is from Murray's cheese!

    What a great spot! I wanted to try every grilled cheese sandwich they offered because they all sounded so delicious. We ordered 2 and split them between 6 people. So good, and reasonably priced.

    So many different types of beer and bourbon with a great backyard. Fun fact it's named for a body of water that doesn't stretch here anymore because you need water to make bourbon and beer.

    grilled cheese, whiskey, and beer are some of my favorite things. this place specializes in all 3. try the betsy and if it's nice, sit in the back! there's a beautiful outdoor space.

    The huge garden in the back is a well manicured palace filled with extensive whiskey options and delicious grilled cheeses.

    Grilled cheeses aren't made in a pan - less greasy & oily than you're used to - still pairs well with the great whiskey selection.

    All sandwiches are pretty good, but Vernice is the most interesting, combo of thick Conn ricotta, sweet fruit preserves & Nutella, sourdough. A dessert sandwich, but the sourdough adds funk.
