Thanks to live music, this popular hangout is probably known more for fun than food, but that does not mean you will not be impressed with the culinary results. Do not expect an extensive menu, although you will be more than satisfied with one of the delicious burgers, the Philly cheese steak sandwich or one of a variety of salads. The beer selection is impressive, with domestic choices around. The simple menu at Hammerstone's is actually quite impressive. Overall, it is a good place to unwind with friends or enjoy a casual date, but you will probably want to go elsewhere for a serious business meeting or a true romantic dinner.
