If subtle background music is what you prefer than Hinterland is your place. A small group of musicians, usually between one and three, perform there a few Wednesdays a month. When the weather is nice the live music is played on the patio; other times they are found inside the lounge.

The music varies from classic to folk rock. While the entertainers change so does the restaurant’s menu. Hinterland’s contemporary American cuisine evolves with the seasons and varies every day. Each visit guarantees a new experience.
