A Rueben made with Buddig Corned Beef...? Newsflash...grown-ups with real jobs don't eat fake meat...and Restaurants who want to be seen as real Pubs shouldn't serve fake corned beef. You're banking on the fact that you're the big game in town and as long as people are drinking, they won't care about the taste of the food. You're wrong....

Had the best chicken cordon bleu sandwich ever here. Anything I have had here has been great. I like it here because the chef actually makes some of the dishes, it is not all frozen food like most places. The Sunday brunch is also great.

Decided to meet my husband here after work last week. Wasn't thrilled with the food in the previous location but figured we'd give it another shot. The parking lot was quite full but we discovered one of the back doors was stuck and would not open. After we were seated our server took our drink orders and we checked out... More

I like the decor of the new place... we ate in the tavern area, where TVs are plentiful. My daughter and I ordered beer and burgers. I always order my burger "medium"... my daughter orders hers "medium-rare". You would be surprised how many restaurants screw up a "medium" burger order... usually overcooking it. Our orders came out "spot on".... yummy... More

Love the crab pretzel! Great choices on 1/2 price burger night. Steak salad is also a solid choice. Setting options for family dining or bar/pub for a different feel. Service might take a littler longer, but the food is always worth the wait.

Wednesday is half price burger night. Burgers are fresh made and excellent. There are options for toppings and all are served with fresh cut fries and pickle. Order a nice cold brew and you are living Jimmy Buffet's "Cheeseburger in Paradise" song!

Nice place, intimate casual dining room, great huge bar. Whatever you want to do, they can accommodate. Want a quiet dinner? Done. Want to have a drink with your wife? Done. Hang out outside on patio? Sure. Meet your buddies and hang out. Of course. Good variety on drinks. Decent menu, but I think a bit pricey. Go on Wednesday... More

This place was a major disappointment. The menu is the same as Flannery's, way overpriced for the mediocre food they serve. The service was ok. But my girlfriend ordered a salad and added shrimp.. $7 for 7 tiny shrimp the size of a quarter she was shocked. Flannery's has gone way down hill over the years and this place isn't... More
