The basin pub has gone down hill! We haven't been in a while because I couldn't stand how loud this place is. But I wanted to watch football and they have plenty of tv's with views from every table. To start service was slow, and the bartender kept telling customers that she was sick but on antibiotics. Nice! My old... More

The Basin Pub will never disappoint. It's small enough to be quaint, but busy enough to be a very popular spot. Every time I've ever been here, the food has been great. Cocktails off the 'specials' menu are always spot on and delicious. And our server is always pleasant and cheerful. You can't go wrong with anything you choose here.... More

This place is always crowded, yet you never have to wait for a seat. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. My favorites are the beef on kimmelwick with au jus and horseradish, side of macaroni salad; open faced turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy; buffalo chicken wrap. Great vibe, really nice bar and excellent servers.

Tried a few times now as a few people have said to give it another chance. Service has been close to none existent EVERY time I have been in. One Bartender trying to take care of 20 plus bar seats and 2 or 3 servers standing around watching her crash with no tables and nothing to do. "What do you... More

Service is friendly and makes you feel welcome. Plenty of locals but also good for visitors. Some good local smoked meats and tasty burgers. Nice upscale pub environment. Plenty of beers on tap. Good value too. Cool art on the walls by local artists for sale.

They have a large pub-style menu with appetizers, sandwiches of all kinds, salads, pastas, and entrees. I have only been there twice--both times for lunch. I had the beef on kimmelwick which was excellent and side of slaw (which was good). Reasonable portion, but not huge. My friend had the cobb salad, which looked good. The burger (which I had...

Our family of four stopped here on our way back from a trip, looking for an early dinner. We started with one waitress who never returned. Our second waitress was very kind, but very slow. We waited more than 20 minutes after getting drinks to get our appetizer. After that it was at least another 30 before our food arrived.... More

So disappointing to have to cross a place off the list but we won't be going there again. The experience was a disaster as nothing ever should be. We couldn't believe how terrible the service was.

This is a very nice place and conveniently located near the expressway. They have a full bar and a large selection of craft beers. They have a large lunch menu and every item I've tried was wonderful. My only complaint is that this place always seems unusually loud.
