    The Cellar is cozy and perfect for a glass of wine, a few nibblies, and good conversation. All the apps we had were good, and the worlds best Mac and cheese was definitely up there. Nice service, too.

    We love the happy hour here, since it features $5 specialty cocktails, $6 glasses of wine, AND $7 mac and cheese (enough for a meal!). Make sure to come early before the place fills up.

    Cheese plates, kale salad and the famous mac and cheese are all my favorites here. Plus they have excellent cocktails! Date worthy spot but good for a pricier happy hour, too.

    Go before 7pm for happy hour specials on drinks. Order the cheesemonger's plate (more variety than the Beecher's); 3 cheeses for a light starter to share, 5 if you mean business.
