Hi - so glad to find a lovely bowl of clams in a super creamy garlic spicy sauce - not too spicy - just yummy!

This is not a place to try and go for a quick bite on weekends. The food is always great and the service is always lovely but they do get very busy on weekends so as long as you are prepared for a bit of a wait you should be fine. Haven't tried a single thing here that I didn't... More

We like the lamb burgers, generous patties cooked to our specifications, with sides of crispy roasted red potatoes. What's not to like?

Disclosure: I'm not a beer drinker so my review will be about the atmosphere and food only. Ok, here goes..... I've been here twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. I liked it. It had good food, and good table service (once you get past the wait at the door - I've left twice because of the snootiness at... More

Great variety in the menu, offering a twist on traditional favorites such as turkey on french dip or a lamb burger. We tried both and they were delicious, served with choice of green salad or golden potato wedges. Be advised that to add cheese or grilled onions on the dip will cost you more as did a topping on the... More

Sat outside on a warm October day. Busy on a Saturday, but short wait for table. Really good beer (imperial stout) and the best Reuben sandwich ever! Will be back!

rustic pub with excellent service. Five of us had different meals and we all loved what we had to eat. Their IPA was so totally awesome.

This place is a local hangout and its downtown location with great parking puts it squarely in the bustle. But, every time I've been there (which is about 5 times now, spread over years and seasons), I find that it's the beer and not the food that woos me. They are famous in the micro-brew capital of the U.S. for... More
