Come for the CocktailsTwo things make Areal stand out: location, and serious attention to the drinks. Comfortable indoor-outdoor seating, an inventive list of cocktails (the rum punch is a must), and an eclectic crowd make this one of the more desirable places to lounge on Main Street.
The only caveat is that the menu is hit or miss. Corn soup? Epic. The Mac n cheese? Gorgeous, but just average.
