If the food or service was consistent would be nice! Sometimes great sometimes terrible...I have given up ordering out because every single time there is something missing from my order and I have given up trying!

Lost for words!! Can't believe how horrible this place is!! Very cute pub, but the employees are just temperamental, very unprofessional!! Heard a tantrum coming from the kitchen!! Portions are despicable!!

Plenty of off street parking directly outside. Reasonably dark pub inside but not dank at all. Plenty of booths and table. Fast service by the waitresses. Food was all to order and standard food. A cut above some of the other eating joints in town.

I visit for business on a regular basis (bi-weekly meetings) and have had primarily positive experiences. The food is above average for a pub, would suggest the Buffalo Chicken Wrap or for the larger appetite the "Fed Combo" combination plate of various appetizers. Good atmosphere...More
