We visited late one night as it was one of the only places still open. It was fun. Definitely your local watering hole, but very family friendly. My husband enjoyed the beer and I had a cocktail with a local flavor. Lots of fun.

Now perhaps it's because We are from the PNW, but the beer was a disappointment at this local establishment. Floyd IPA seemed to be made from nothing but hops and water. Don't get me wrong I love IPA's. They're my go to beers for winter....More

Gopd beer and the standard pub fare. I've been there a few times and it's got a nice laid back atmosphere

Stopped by after a movie. Had typical pub food - wings and a hamburger. The BBQ wings were dripping nicely with sauce and cooked perfectly. The hamburger with bacon was juicy and hubby said it was very good. Great meal.
