This is a typical U.S. pub-looking restaurant, with very average food. It was fine for a quick lunch or dinner with friends, as they have TV's, a fireplace, so the setting is fine. The staff seemed unmotivated, but they were friendly.

This place looks super ritzy from the outside but is cozy and inviting once inside. The menu has lots to offer with decent prices, large portions and good food. Excellent beer choices and friendly service.
