I had high hopes for this place, but the food just ended up being mediocre. They had lots of good beer on tap, but I was still disappointed in the food. The atmosphere is nice, and they have an outside deck for when it's nice out.

Came for a quick bite and stayed for several drinks! The waitress was very pleasant, but too attentive for my taste.

I'm still stunned at what I had to deal with tonight and what we witnessed tonight. We'll never go back here again, after reading some of the recent reviews I don't understand how ownership continues to let things continue to go downhill. First, we get there and a guy that looks like he feel out of bed greets us at... More

We used to go every weekend for karaoke, dinner and beer. They no longer have the karaoke couple they used to on fri and sat. from a few years ago,and the music they do have now is sub par at best. Just not the same. If your looking for a fun Friday or Saturday night out don't go here. The... More

I did not want to even give it one star but the site requires you check the box to continue. This was the third time in 3 years that I have ordered food. A terrible disappointment each time. Took a friend there last month who was visiting from out of state. It was Thursday night and I thought it would... More

So we went in here on a whim. Very close to where we live. I must say the beer was nice and cold. Tasted fresh like the lines were cleaned. They have a decent selection of craft beers, which is what we like. So far so good until we order our second beer, they use the same glass. Sorry but... More

This place is beyond awful, burnt food, and No service we waited and waited forever to be seated and waited on and not once were asked if we would like refills. I could not understand the way we were ignored almost the entire visit. Take your hard earned money somewhere that deserves it because this place is a poor excuse

The menu is pretty standard pub type food, but nothing stand out. We were there on a Friday night and it wasn't too busy. That said, the service wasn't exactly the most attentive. If all you want to do is have a beer and watch a game, it probably isn't a bad place. If you are looking for a good... More

I was there with a group of 8 at 6:30 on a Saturday night. It was starting to get crowded but there was only one waitress and I could tell she was doing her best to keep up with many demands -- so needless to say, service was a bit slow!!! The menu offers a nice variety and was pretty... More
