While visiting our family in the area, we had dinner here(third time) and always enjoy the great food and accommodating staff. Picky teenagers who ate everything they ordered. Multiple choices, hard to pick an entree due to selection being so good.

Love this neighborhood pub! If you're looking for a lengthy beer selection, good pub food, live music, friendly wait staff and bartenders then this should be your new go-to spot. Large bar. Finally, a clean pub restaurant where your feet don't stick to the floor!
