Great place to meet up with friends, coworkers or a date. Food and appetizer available. If you like flat draft beer this is the place to drink.

over the years this was the place to go the service has gone down hill. The Pot Pie (which was always great) was cold and lacking taste. There were 5 of us and each had different meals. Everyone was disappointed
