We were fortunate to get a table right away on a Saturday afternoon at this popular restaurant. I had the Elizabeth salad and added pulled chicken. The chicken had a reheated taste and I wasn't fond of it. The rest of the salad was average. My husband has a burger and he was happy with his meal. I have heard... More

What an amazing little place. Warm greetings, warm décor, craft beer and EVERYTHING is homemade and FABULOUS!!!....right down to their own Tartar sauce! My 18year old son was home from College, during his Christmas break, and we had a mother/son date day. We had heard about this restaurant on the TV Show, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, with Guy Fieri, and... More

Had a wonderful family meal here – this is my granddaughter's favourite place to eat out. Our server was outstanding, even when a full pint of beer got knocked over. Never gone wrong with a menu choice. Deep fried green beans are a must-try. Craft beer list is terrific.

Great place that always makes you feel welcome. It seems like a part of the neighborhood. I have come back here again and again...it's always a good experience. The food is so tasty and the atmosphere is welcoming. And if you want a beer there is a good selection. Always a winning choice.

My wife and I went here for dinner and it was fantastic. I would highly recommend reservations, as it is a small place and can get pretty busy. We got the cheese curds, which were the special appetizer for the day, as well as the pretzel bread, which is part of the everyday menu. The cheese curds were delicious! The... More

Very diverse menu. So many nice choices. Can't go wrong with Bangers and mash. The sausages where so tender and full of flavor while the gravy for the mashed potato was incredible. I had a nibble of my wife's bahn mei sandwich and it was delicious. Just enough zip to wake up the taste buds. Great beer and wine selection.... More

Came on a Wednesday as we thought it would be slower! Wrong! 75 minute wait BUT worth it. Banh Mi sandwich was fabulous. Just the right amount of zing.

Very interesting blend of standard fare & novel approaches to traditional cuisine. The wait staff is helpful & knowledgeable about their menu. Molly offered samples of the dark beer to help decide; loved local Delano dark stout with fish & chips (add vinegar too). Small space & a bit noisy; child friendly. BTW; bathrooms were very clean. Reservations suggested.

The restaurant bills itself as "British," but judging from the menu is transnational. There's nothing "British" about the Asian Hangover, the fried green beans or the chicken curry sandwich. Do try the braised ribs. You will not be disappointed.

Took the family to this Triple D spot and was not disappointed. Braised boneless beef rib was fork tender and unctious. Bourbon barrel aged stout brasing liquid used for gravy added a slight sweetness to it. Very creamy mashed potatoes underneath. And al dente green beans on the side. It's a small place so reservations are suggested. We had the... More
