In the shadow of the County Courthouse, the Courtyard Grub & Pub is a prime example of what a bar and grille should be. However, it should more properly be called a grille and bar as the emphasis is on the food. You would expect burgers to dominate the menu at a place like this, but honestly, you may not expect such an incredible selection of unique, perfectly prepared beef on a bun. Consider their bacon cheese burger, listed as the Parole Burger on the Courthouse-themed menu. Topped with aged cheddar and two slices of thick cut bacon, the burger itself is partially made of ground bacon. Add the fresh cut fries and you have the quintessential bar and grille meal. The atmosphere is pleasantly light for a bar/grille and the owners encourage family dining. During the warm months, the outside dining area is the perfect spot to take in the historic downtown architecture.
