My elderly mother and I enjoy lunch here regularly. We have always been more than satisfied with the food quality. The service could be improved, but is not bad. The one improvement I would suggest, which may sound petty, is that they need better quality paper napkins especially with the type of food they serve. Overall, excellent food and good... More

...don't miss this downtown Sycamore bar and restaurant for very fairly priced and flavorful food items, along with wonderful beverages for young and old. This is not an overpriced place and is in a great location. Think Spring!!

Had sandwich with additional trimmings. Very tasty. It's always fun when Craig Mathey and his friends play wonderful music to enjoy outside.

Always enjoy coming here once in awhile. Seems to be packed all the time. Enjoy the old bar and tin ceilings. Food is normal pub grub,but good.

Best service around. The wait staff works very hard to make sure you have an enjoyable experience and they take the extra time to make sure the order is right. Bloody Mary bar on Sunday is the best. Every ingredient for a Bloody Mary you could want.

My husband and I love this place. The menu is extensive and everything on it is good. We do keep going back to our favorites, though, which is a huge basket of handmade onion strings and the frisco burger- burger, cheese, garlic mayo, bacon on buttered toasted sour dough bread. It's out of this world good! The people are friendly... More
