We stopped in for Happy Hour. I had 2 well prepared cocktails and my spouse had hot tea. She also tried the chicken noodle soup and popovers. She enjoyed each very much. I tried the vegetable mandoo (korean style dumplings) served on asian slaw with horseradish and sriracha sauce for dipping. Huge serving! The dumplings make great finger food and... More

Stopped in for lunch, sat at the bar. Rob the bartender is highly personable. Talked me into the Italian sandwich lunch special, it was meaty and delicious. Enjoyed it with a tap beer (Hemp Pilsner) from my favorite brewery - Gull Dam Brewing. Next time I must try the shrimp tacos. Love this place!

Upon entering we were shepherded into the bar instead of the dining room so I guess we ate bar food. The black vinyl booth had large tears in the seat exposing the foam padding beneath. A look around the bar revealed a general need for refreshing and refinishing. However, we were there to meet up with old friends and have... More

Pub 42 has a great location and is a very nice establishment for meeting friends for eating and drinking. The food has always been very good and plentiful. The service is fast and friendly. Bingo nights are busy and have large pay outs. We will be back! Also a great place to watch sports. Only disappointing thing was there out... More

This was my first time eating/drinking at this neighborhood pub. The food & service were good as was my drink. Everything was served fresh & hot as ordered. A bit noisy but I can live with that if the food is worth it & it was.

It was a busy night. We expected to wait. They told us 20-30 minutes. We waited 50 minutes, when a party came in checked how long the wait was, and was brought to a table within 10 minutes. There were many other people there on the list after us, but these people were seated within 10 minutes. We addressed this... More

I recently held a Grooms Dinner Party for approx. 60 people. I selected Pub 42 because of my experiences dining at this establishment a number of times over the years. All of my guests and I were not disappointed. The ease, of coordinating this large group for this venue was fantastic using Pub's 42 Banquet Room. The food, the staff,... More

Formerly the Sunshine Factory in New Hope. Pub 42 has a great selection of food, a full bar, and an excellent craft beer selection. I have been there on a few occasions, but the most recent one I had the Double Bleu Burger. It was a very large burger cooked to perfection. The restaurant describes it as "smothered in Black...

the ahi tuna is tender and you get a lot, the chicken tenders are always a hit, We tried the flatbread when was good as well. I don't think you will go wrong with anything on the menu.
