I had not been here in about 5 years, as I had always found the food below par. Was planning on meeting a friend to watch the NFL Playoffs and thought I'd give it another try. I dropped in earlier in the day to make sure the game would be on and they said it would. Got there and looked... More

Great local pub, everyone knows about it. They have wing night, and many other specials. Small location, often busy. Parking lot to the side. Many tables for big groups. Alright food.

The food is ok, service is extremely slow, even if you pre-order... Need to get servers attention for any refills or issues, they tend to not check on you at all until you are finished eating.

It you need 4 different screens to watch whilst you are waiting for drinks and food this is the place for you. Ideal I should think if you are not speaking with whomsoever you are with. The portion sizes were humongous and the food rather average. There are no restrooms.

Went about six weeks ago with a bunch of friends. We were seated and waited for twenty minutes and had no service so we got up and left. Tonight though I'd try it again and my daughter found a hair in her shirley temple. I will not be returning ever again.

2 girls working the inside and out, 1 behind the bar picking up the slack, kitchen messed up, not the girls. Better communication is required between each area, and one another. Might have made a difference regarding the service of food, like the appetizer before the main course... food, not the best. We had the fish and chips and Philly... More
