We went to celebrate two birthdays. We were one short of being able to make a reservation, so used the 'call ahead' service. We did get seated in fairly good time. Our waitress was prompt, polite and paid extra attention to one of our guests - it always seems funny to me that one person may get more attention than the others especially when it's not the 'bill payer' - but anyway. It is a 'Tavern' environment, so not fancy...very down to earth. They have notepaper with 'build your own salad' and one with 'build your own burgers' There is a base price and the note tells you what is included and what isn't....you then check what you want. There are other options, but you may have to pay extra, but it's marked clearly on the paper. You then add your name and hand that to the waitress OR you can order off their menu, which had a good selection. Most of us chose 'build your own burger' - it was great - the burger was juicy and good and you got exactly what you wanted on it. Everyone liked them. They are 1/2# of meat however, so be prepared. One person had a Reuben and s aid it was delicious and one other had something off the dinner menu and again, said it was very good. Drinks were good. Prices were ok. If you just want some good Pub/Tavern food, this was good. Not outstanding or anything to make it stand out to me, but good solid food. Enjoy!

This is a fun place to visit with other friends. Vibrant, loud, good food and friendly service. Nice patio and bar in the summer time too!

Just down the street from Fairview Hospital, it made a convenient place to stop for a later night supper. We sat in the bar area to facilitate a quicker seating and even though this was a Tuesday night, it was quite busy. We ordered two E&J brandies for $7.50 each and then two Christian Brothers for the same price, but making the later long pours, $4 was added to charge. You can build your own burger here which my wife did for $11.50 and I did the Tavern Style Burger for $12.00. Both were very tasty. Anthony was our waiter and was very attentive to our needs.

Grab a pen and fill out the check boxes to build your own salad. It's a fun way to order the salad of your liking. Many ingredients to choose from. Top it off with a glass of iced tea. The place fills up on most days so get there early.

We stopped for lunch on our way out of town. It was very busy but it didn’t take too long to be seated. We ordered the Veg Head burger which was a grilled portabella sandwich with all the fixings and a Grilled Club sandwich. We sipped on a Surly Tap and a custom Bloody Mary off the build your own menu. Talk about a salad in a glass. Other build your own menus included burgers, pizzas and salads for those who like to be creative. It was a nice stop with a pleasant atmosphere and good service.
