It was Sunday and not much was open and I was hungry. This is or appears to be a very old bar/restaurant with lots of detailed wood. Better lit, it might to really grand [although it did not seem very clean]. Ate at the bar because there was nobody in the restaurant. Nice selection of beer on tap, and a couple of colorful and friendly drunks on hand.
The menu is long but without anything really unique or even tasty sounding. Nothing memorable about the food.
I'm guessing because of the size and location that it does better during the week than on a rainy Sunday but a bigger crowd wouldn't help this place. I was surprised to learn this was a franchise.

Well the title says it all. We usually go to Market Cross on Sunday evenings but tried this for a change. The chicken in the chicken parm was terrible. I should have followed the old adage that if there are 5000 things on the menu go with something simple and cheap, that way if it is awful you won't feel as bad. I honestly do not know why they have so many things to make mediocre. Why not take 1/4 of those and do them well?
The buffalo wings and onion rings were good. Don't stray from those.

Great food, good drafts and really nice bartenders and servers. Really good fajitas and salads. Love it. Tucked away and off of the street it is a really nice restaurant with beautiful woodwork. A fun place!

They have awesome food. However it’s a little bit pricey. The seating in this place sucks! They have a few booths and some tables crowded and shoved together. They have a back room that allows smoking where you can shoot pool.

When I used to live in Carlisle, I was a regular in this bar. I mainly used to hang out in its non-smoking section. It has a great decor inside. They have a good selection of pub food. Their staff Dan Miller is a wonderful, very intelligent person to have a conversation with. I miss G-man.
