Great pub atmosphere, family friendly to all ages. The servers were some of the nicest ever encountered. Try the Shepard's Pie as recommended by out server. Very tasty, great preparation and presentation. Fast service, great drinks, and great prices.

We have been here several times as we really wanted to like this place but have given up. Every time we have gone here to get lunch, the wait staff is EXTREMELY slow.

I go here all the time. The burgers are great and you will not find better chicken wings ANYWHERE. Great place to watch a game or even just go relax with your date

Had a great time, even though a huge Penny Bar if was family friendly. The food was excellent, we were there early so the noise level was fine. I would assume as the night crowd comes in it gets a little more noisy. Their corned beef, rueben sandwich is to die for, if you are a corned beef person!!

Cool seedy bar with all you'd expect...Jager shot machine at the bar, pool tables, Keno, lottery, dart board, jukebox, stale cigarette smell, etc...
