Quaint small pub with better than average simple fare. I had the Ruben with hand cut fries. Plenty of corned beef and kraut. Enjoyed the corner bar atmosphere. Not fancy or upscale, just a good place to sit with friends and have a bite to...More

Reasonable prices, good food, good service, will go back. Sports bar feel. One of the best Reuben’s I’ve ever had. Husband’s hamburger was excellent.

It's an Irish Pub, we were thirsty and that's why we stopped here. The atmosphere was just as it must be in a pub. Somewhat dark, not too loud and a bartender who served all the guests very courteously and quickly. The fresh draft beer...More

We went on a weekday night. It is full of locals and one girl in particular was very drunk and falling around the place. I had fish and chips which was ok but pretty expensive for the amount I got. The music was very loud....More
