You'd never guess from its exterior that hiding inside is a really great pub with terrific food. Wonderful assortment of beers and a large selection of really good wines by the glass. The fish tacos were good and the crab cakes were wonderful. Terrific service...More

Food was excellent, staff was great, and beer was cold! Went for lunch and went back the same night for Cards Against Humanity tournament. Extremely fun!

Nice bar and quite environment with great food. We always get the fish tacos which are to die for. Good local beer selection and family friendly management.

We had frequented this lovely location under the former management and it was 10/10! The steak salad was worthy of a pic and the beer samplers were fun. It was closed and reopened under different management and sadly it isn't even close to what it...More

Great place to go for a burger and beer. The food is good and the people are friendly, the only thing that could use improvement is the decor or lack of. It's a nice old building but could use some kind of atmosphere.
