Stopped here on our way across island. It was worth looking for this place, tucked into a shopping center. Nice owner served us. Great Billiards Burger with unusual slaw that was very tasty. Hubby had a steak & salad that was done perfectly. Good selection of beers too. I saw lots of locals & the Police eating here, so you... More

We happened to be in town for the Super Bowl and needed a place to watch it. We talked to some local folks and the Korner Pocket was the unanimous recommendation. We stopped in the night before to check it out, and we liked the atmosphere, they had a good bar, a couple pool tables, and plenty of tables to... More

KP is a great place to meet the locals. It has undergone a little bit of renovations (could use some more but then it might lose its "charm") but what it lacks in ambiance it makes up with the food. Prime rib is awesome. Taco Tuesdays are yummy! Burgers are great. Very reasonably priced too

Service sucks. Waited 20 minutes and not one person came to our table to see what we wanted. Finally stood up and left. Had dinner down the street at a pizza place that was courteous, friendly and glad we stopping in. Left them a 30% tip!

I don't generally like sports bars, but if you go in for Sunday Breakfast they do a good job and you get a glimpse of local culture.

We met friends for dinner and live music at the corner pocket and were expecting "bar food". We had a fresh catch fish sandwich and fish tacos. Delicious. Our friends had primerib. Everything was delicious. Service was great. Our waitress was supported by two other servers making for a great dining experience. The band was great. The solo opening act... More

Do not be put off by the pool table in the bar. Populated by many locals for a reason! Good food, inexpensive, good service...nothing fancy though...just burgers, fish & chips, etc. But yummy!

Excellent service, excellent food. Not what you would expect of a local spot with a pool table in the middle of the room. The fish and chips are outstanding and the beer is good to.
