Lock Yard is an unexpected treat. With its Coney Island theme, the restaurant and bar is specializing in craft beers, artisanal sausages and hot dogs. We tried the Johnny Cash, a crisp link loaded up with chili, cheddar and diced onion, and another called Zuckermann's Famous with thick chunks of bacon and cheddar cheese. It came with a nice side of thick-cut waffle fries with a spicy buffalo sauce. Both hot dogs were excellent, as was the beer which arrived perfectly chilled. Located in what used to be a locksmith, Lock Yard also has a year-round beer garden that is definitely worth seeking out in this part of town.
