Some may say the great age of the diner is over, but that’s not the case at Dots Back Inn. This tiny brick building is a North Side gem, a place for a pint and wide array of tasty comfort foods, served up by friendly staff.
A standby in Church Hill, Patrick Henry’s Pub & Grille blends well with the iconic and stately brick homes of the area. Those curious enough to venture inside will find a family-friendly restaurant augmented by a bustling pub in the basement. Accessed through a side door, the bar is favorite hiding place for those searching for good company in a more intimate atmosphere.
