We wanted something casual and inexpensive, and we were pleased on both points! The food was good (salad was fresh, sandwiches well grilled, etc.) - certainly I would consider it "good pub grub". We had an appetizer, two sandwiches/burgers, a side salad and 8 beers and the total was $49 (before tip). Can't beat the price, service was decent and... More

We asked at the hotel for a good place to get and afternoon drink...the new desk clerk sent us here. It's a local Bar and grill. Clean and friendly but showing its age some. We had good drinks at a fair price. The bar food we show go by looked pretty good, though we were going elsewhere for dinner.

I have always enjoyed the food here. Never had a bad meal!! Service is usually very good - depends on which day/night you go.

I go here every Tuesday night after our county commissioner meeting. And I always have my usual... a Jameson on the rocks and a turkey club. Trish, the barkeep, has my drink poured as soon as I go in... or is waiting for me at our table if a friend beats me there. And Emma starts fixing my sandwich as... More

This is the best of the local real people stops. I love the atmosphere and readiness to get to know you. Food is simple, local, and excellent, with prices to match.

If you want a great hamburger this is the place to go. Not fancy but a local hangout. Had a crab cake sandwich tonite and it was so good.

Stay for the service! The fish is local Rockfish and it is sooooo sweet and good that I asked for more. The staff is awesome because they come over,get your order, deliver your food and get it all handled. This is not a fancy spot. It's about the food and the drink and that's it. It's a local watering hole,... More

The food was good. However, the service was terrible. We waited ten or fifteen minutes just to get a menu. I think the restaurant was understaffed.

The staff was friendly but kinda slow could of just been because they were so busy. The inside looks like... More
