The food is just horrible. Pub food can be really good...... somewhere else. Only went here to kill time and almost killed myself in the process.

Lots of TVs, lots of beer on tap, great food, mediocre service. I got the cheese steak and loved it. The buffalo chicken bites are also worth it.

Have been several times for beer and food. Pitchers and pints of all sorts of microbrews and bottles of standard beers. A different food special every day of the week, such as big $5 burgers on Mondays. Service can be slow if they get slammed. Lots of TVs tuned to a variety of different sports channels. Parking can be hard.

The woman who owns and operates this bar is the least service-oriented person I have experienced in a long time. She acts like it's a pain in her rear to take your order, doesn't smile, say thank you...nothing. Why she bothers dealing with the public is lost on me. The bathrooms are not clean.

I have been here several times during the day for lunch and sports on TV. There are a lot of TV's, and they'll try to put the game you want on the TV nearest you. Something like 40 beers on tap, with many microbrews. Decor is minimal. Food is good, filling pub food, nothing fancy but done well. $5 burgers... More

The burger was average or maybe above but service was sub-standard. I had to struggle to get her attention for tea refills and sauce for fries etc.

Ok pub..lighting is too bright for me. Staff very UNFRIENDLY. No "hi", "what I get you", just a scoll and acting like they are doing you a favor by serving you.

A roomy sports bar with a great beer selection and reasonable pub fare. Good Nachos, Burgers and my favorite hot wings (no mess dry, spicy with yummy blue cheese dip). It is what it is. If you are high maintenance or want faux urban chic go somewhere else.

brough about 15 or so co workers to this place thinking it would be fun and casual. It turns out, they weren't interested in serving us so I gave a snap and wave. The guy from the bar (white shirt with a black number 45) that was doing a half job of serving came up and said "don't snap at... More
