If you like good beer and tater tots, you'll love Quarry House. It's a dive bar. Literally. You have to go underground, under and Indian restaurant, to find it. It's worth the experience. Get the tots with cheddar and bacon and a brew off their extensive beer list. If you're looking for a romantic night out, this isn't your place.... More

Quarry House is a local dive bar with a great selection of beer and whisky, but it's simply too small and too loud for a good meal. The food in general is only so-so, but the house-made tater tots and fried oreos might just be worth slumming it!

Burgers come in 1/3 and 1/2 lb sizes. Fresh made potato chips with dill dip are crazy good, or try the tater tots with old bay seasoning. Mondays are half-priced burger nights and you should get there early because the place is small and it's self-seating so you'll have to hawk on diners' tables if you arrive after 7 or... More

This place is a Dive with good burgers & great deals on beer & bourbon. Its in the basement, no decor, poor service, loud, yet its packed!!! You get great value. If you're looking for a dive then the atmosphere is great, if not, go somewhere else and pay twice as much.

For my birthday dinner with my wife and adult children, I chose this dive bar instead of someplace fancy. Great choice! Terrific vibe. Hamburgers were great, and the tater tots were terrific. Nice selection of beer on tap, with an extensive menu of whiskies (including some unusual single malt Scotch). If yoou're looking for someplace classy, this ain't it. But... More

It's not the swankiest place in the area, but there's a cool vibe, great music (juke box and sometimes live music) and the burgers & tots are out of this world! Excellent selection of beers and whiskies - easily the best in the area. This pub was once a speakeasy during Prohibition, so if you don't get a friend who's... More

I love this place. I try to make it here whenever I can. As many others have mentioned, if you don't know about this place then it is pretty hard to find and you'd likely walk right past it. It is located in the basement, down a flight of stairs. However, don't be intimidated by the dark, dingy look from... More

A small ally and flight of stairs could easily be overlooked while walking. A bar with a home feeling that you can drink here all day. The beer selection by far is the star attraction. Staff members are really good references on new beers. Make no mistakes this place is a dive and the menu offers simple bar comfort food.... More
