Terrible food with poor service, many "undesirables" lurking inside and out. Limited parking and located in a high crime area. I would avoid this one and go elsewhere if I were you

Our group of bowling friends decided on this place for lunch. Great choice. Lots of menu choices. I had the taco wrap and very good. Our group had a wide variety of choices; hamburgers, Italian beef combo, Italian beef, fish sandwich, salad, & hot dog. The 1/2 salad is quite large. All said their food was tasty & very good....

Went in the afternoon, and the dining area was almost empty. We thought that this could be a bad sign, but were pleasantly surprised. The wait staff was efficient, helpful and pleasant but not hovering. The food was good (we had pasta meals), the beer was as expected for a pub (very good). Enjoyed it and will return. The online...

Regular diner at restaurant. Food and service is generally good, but it sure would be nice if they exerted the minimal effort required to publish a written beer list (especially for craft beers that are pouring/available). It is nearly impossible to make an good selection based on the server rattling off the list of craft beers he/she can remember. (or... More

Wasn't sure what to expect, the wife loves pizza, me not so much, but it was the first time we were in Aurora and saw the sign. We ordered the wings as an appetizer and they were fantastic. We got the bbq sauce, but they had a slight heat to them from the coating. Not too hot, just right. Then... More

Average bar & eatery. Service is average. Close to home so we go there once in awhile. The breaded cod is good.

The wait staff was bad, they were too busy screwing around to be concerned with serving, we had to "find" a waitress, then had to go to the bar and ask for a menu, because the staff was too busy screwing around, some chap that was stocking the beer finally gave me one, after I said excuse me three times,...
