Service was super friendly and fast. Great place to hang out, chat with other patrons and listen to some music. Food is average pub food. Tomato soup was good. Would recommend more for drinks than food.

This restaurant was next to our hotel and we stopped in for a quick bite. It was delicious. We did Cobb Salads and WIngs. It was an off time of the afternoon so the service was a bit slow - but very pleasant.
