4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Didn't feel like cooking and my husband suggested this restaurant. We have been here before and the food was good, but we had a long wait. This time we got seated right away and served very quickly. Would definitely go back again.

If you re looking for the best burgers anywhere, then this is the place. Meat is prime and tasty. Port wine cheese is outstanding. Wings are tasty and sauce is sweet. Plenty of beers to choose from. Place gets very crowded on Friday and Saturday nights. Great casual place to bring the family of all ages.

This place has prompt and courteous servers. But, for the life of me, I really don't see what all the hoopla is about this place. I mean, the decor is not "chic worn" but just plain worn. That includes the plastic chairs under the tarp out back. As far as the food, it's okay but nothing on that menu can... More

We had a great time at the Stirling Hotel for dinner on Saturday. We ate at the bar since it was very busy. The bartenders were very friendly as were the other patrons. The burgers were good and the onion rings were excellent.

Definitely stop by for the outdoor ambiance and a beer when the weather is nice. The food here is average but the atmosphere makes up for it. Fun place to grab a drink after work.

Went here again about a month ago, ordered steak Tacos, three arrived. The filling in the three was barely enough for one! It will be a long, long time before I return. The prices are ridiculous. Other restaurants that have a far better menu and far better food (i.e. Rod's) do not charge as much. Not worth going here. It... More

Stopped here for lunch on a friend's recommendation on our way home from PA. Sat at the bar, great vibe, looks like a cross between an authentic Irish pub and a hunting lodge. Great craft beers on tap, had the mussels in a cream sauce, and jalapeño poppers, great time, friendly bartenders, we will definitely return.

We were in the area and I looked up the best rated eatery in the immediate area and this popped up as the best. The outside appearance was cool, like you're visiting an old time pub. You enter into the bar area and if your not familiar on how seek a hostess your lost. A bar patron told us we... More
