Awesome atmosphere! Everyone is friendly and happy. I was warned that this place had taken a turn for the worse and I beg to differ. My boyfriend and I came in last night. The place was not so busy but I think it's gotten a bad wrap from too many negative cyberspacers. The servers were great; the bartenders smiling. The... More

The last dozen times visited our order was completely screwed up from apps to dinner. A year ago I thought it was a hidden gem. As a customer that would like to return someday I offer this advice. CLEAN HOUSE IN THE KITCHEN!! The food has been unbelievably off. Couldn't believe what arrived at our table on our last visit.... More

Went in for a late night dinner and left an hour later. Ordered food at 8:20 PM. Side salads for appetizers. At 9:15 PM politely asked for waitress for time on food and how much longer it would take. Waitress walked by us 3 times and we decided to get up and leave. No food and no drink refills. Worst... More

Meagshep I am extremely sorry for the way you were treated. I can understand why you got up and left. I apologize for the delay you had while at the restaurant and I see that back in 2015 you gave us 5 stars and you enjoyed Thursday night bingo with us back then. I wanted to let you know that...

This place is a decent spot for a large group. Decent beer selection and has a full bar. Food is average. Service is average. Atmosphere is average. It's not a bad spot, just nothing special. Nice central spot to grab a bite before heading out to some of the other establishments in the area for a drink.

What happened to this place? Went in a few months ago, and the beer taps were not working. Things happen, no big deal. Ordered a sangria, which was poured out of a rubbermaid container. Wouldn't have been so bad, had the sangria not tasted flat, and my glass was not even 3/4 full. Food took almost an hour, and the... More

We arrived between lunch and dinner. The atmosphere is part pub part somewhat run down local bar. We were greeted warmly by the waitress/bartender combo We all got various burgers with fries and onion rings. The burgers are freshly made and did come cooked as requested but were not excellent --just okay. The onion rings are not homemade the fries... More

On our way home from a football game we decided to try this place out. Great beer list, decent menu we were in. The service was quick and friendly. The food was pretty good, pub food. The only complaint I have is that it was so dark in there I could hardly read the menu!!!

I dont think that under any circumstances one should wait 45 minutes for a meal of simple fish and chips. When I asked about my food after some 25 minutes, the waitress said there had been a large party of 18 in the bar, but I noted that they had been served well before my query. During my wait, a...
