This is the best burger that I have tasted, it was seasoned excellently and a good purchase. The atmosphere felt like family.

Good food with lots of pub-like atmosphere. Easy place to sit, eat and talk and just enjoy an evening out.

Neat little pub with great fish and chips and craft beer selection. Food was served hot and quick. Friendly bar staff too. The Hampton Inn valets, Barrett and David recommended and they were spot on.

A main stay in the downtown area. Small tight seating like most places in the DT area. Gets very loud quickly. Food is average bar food but staff are always attentive and helpful with recommendations..

We read the reviews and were thinking, "probably NOT typical pub food", but we were wrong. Fish and Chips, Chicken tender platter. Not good. Typical pub food. Will not return.

I have always had fantastic meals here. It's good for you to go there with family or friends and causal clothes. There usually is a wait but it's worth it.
