The Innkeeper Restaurant Review

: Comfortable but classy, The Innkeeper has a blue collar vibe and low-key ambience with down-to-earth hospitality. It’s a favorite, cozy watering hole for area denizens during dark winter months, and an outdoor patio beckons in summer. Drinking, in all its forms, including hand-crafted cocktails, is the main event, but the menu offers an affordable selection of small plates inspired by the “sunny” cuisines of Central and South America. For example, there’s the green chili, either pork or vegan, and a slow-roasted Cuban pork sandwich, perfect with a pint of local brew. Other favorites include the spicy Caribbean goat curry and slow-roasted Brazilian chicken thighs with fried plantains. Oysters on the half shell are just $1 each at happy hour.
