Great burgers, Cheers like bar atmosphere. Not sure why the picture is showing a waitress though. Last time I was here, we ordered at the bar and picked up our food at the bar.


Amber Inn is a small, local eatery and pub. The menu is totally bar food, the prices are OK, but the food leaves something to be desired. It's a good place for a beer, though. The on-tap selection is good, so if you're looking for a brew they'll treat you right.


A 'Cheers' type of place-casual-cozy & basic


I love the atmosphere here and the food is really quite good for "bar food" I've had the chicken sandwich and loved it!


I would agree with the other posters. The exterior of the Amber Inn is very unassuming, but the burgers and drinks are great!
