Great burgers and pub food, good beer selection, clean, friendly and professional wait staff. I was there with a wine drinker and they only had 1 wine. So, four stars if you're looking for wine.

Great Bar!! Wonderful choice of good beers, and good place to drink with friends. Just a few blocks north of the hustle and bustle of the sites and trendy big city bars. Highly recommend!
