Enjoyed a wonderful lunch - great roast beef grinder and vegetarian sandwich. Tasty food and lots of it. Hear their pizzas are excellent. The beer selection was good and we loved the fact that this is definitely a locals hangout.

This is what you want when you visit a new town. The place the locals hang out at. The food was really good....pizzas were thin crust with better than normal options for toppings. Dough is all hand made fresh daily which shows. The salads are huge! I fell for the grinder....full of fresh sliced meats and cheeses all stuffed in... More

I don't know what other reviewers whom given low reviews were expecting, this is a small town country bar. They have darts and a pool table, one TV, menu was large considering the size of the place, and some tables outside on the patio. Food was considerably above average, I had a Calzone which do take a while, time was... More

We go frequently to listen to Odd Dog band when they are there. Great selection of beers and good food. Can get a little noisey ,it is a smaller place. But worth it . They have a small outdoor patio.

I live practically across the street from the Lizard so my husband and I were really disappointed that this is not an option for a local hang out. We have given it many tries but we always end up regretting it. Food is a hit or miss. Sometimes the pizza is decent however, the service is TERRIBLE! If you are... More

Pretty decent sandwich that was large enough to share. Good cider choices and cold beer. Only complaint is the glasses smell strongly of bleach. Not very appetizing.

My husband and I decided to give this place another try as we had only been their once before for pizza which we thought was over priced and had not returned since. We went on a Saturday around six or so and when we walked in the smell of underarm/stinky body filled the air. I looked at my husband totally... More

Decent pub food and great selection of local craft beers from NM. Friendly atmosphere and live music many nights during the week. Pool table, darts and easy going approach to the brew and burgers. Beer and wine only but ample choice on the beer side

We patronize this friendly establishment every week, for the King Cobra pizza and beer. This eatery has a "Cheers" feel about it, because you can always find the same folk gathered around the copper bar.
