Wow, best visit yet! Went here with our family. Started with a strawberry basil sangria for the misses and a flight of beer for me. Awesome! Truffle fries bread sticks, Cuban grinder, kid perch, kid steak, wedge salad, margarita pizza, hanger steak...everything was outstanding. Thanks!

My husband and I stopped in during a recent wine tasting tour of the OMP. The food was delicious! I had the mac & cheese and my husband had the burger. Both were very good. Service was great (thanks, Rob!).

Loved the location and the atmosphere was cozy and quaint. I had the bison sloppy Joe, and it was very good and my husband had the fish and chips. The only complaint is that the fish and chips were $22.00!

Good when in the area - Gluten Free choices. 70's decor fun pub atmosphere. No outside seating which we prefer. Local hard cider is good. Do have GF beer sometimes. None today. We did pulled pork nachos and a side salad. Quick service, good food...More

This place met and exceeded expectations. Inside is beautiful and rustic like an old barn. Service was fast and kind. I had pulled pork and it was simply delicious. Best place on the Peninsula.

The manager went out if his way to help us get the white wine we were looking for. The waitress was very friendly and caring. The ribs and perch were excellent.
