Great menu. Wife loves the tuna Caesar salad. Soups are great . Wraps are delicious. Fish dinners are tasty with great slaw . Craft beer selection is always refreshed. Samples can be requested at no charge. Waitresses are terrific and service is very swift even when restaurant is filled

My husband and I had friends who were in Columbus for Christmas and we live in Zanesville so we agreed to meet here as it was about half way for each of us. We had been there once a couple of years ago but our friend had not. We each had a beer and talked for a while before we... More

Probably a good GameDay sports bar but nothing really jumped out at me given the overall rating. I had wings, fries and a side salad as an entree. The wife had a Rubin. All were just OK. The beer list is extensive and prices are moderate to high for an informal setting.

We went here because it got decent reviews but I would rate it as average. I ordered the turkey burger - which they said was hand made - but they said they were out of it. How can you be out of a turkey burger at 7:30 on a Saturday night? I ordered the mandarin salad instead - it was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review Kerrie M. Apologies for being out of Ground Turkey early in the evening. We have our Turkey ground for us from Krogers daily. We are not happy with any other processed Ground Turkey from any of our suppliers. Unfortunately, we had a run on Turkey Burgers that day,... More

My family and I go here quite a bit. There is a great beer selection, plenty of televisions to see whatever game you'd like, and a frequently updated menu.

Came here with my family and received very good service and excellent food. The fish and chips were great, as was my margarita. Would highly recommend if you're tired of all the chain restaurants in the area.

Typical upper scale pub fare. I enjoyed the blue cheese and Applewood bacon burger and the hubs had the Cuban sandwich. Flight of beers to taste from the extensive draught choices was only 6 bucks. Food was good, but a little on the high end of what I thought it was worth.
