The aroma of this place wafts all across downtown Geneva. Smelled so good we decided to try it one night before a show at the Smith. We're glad we did! The atmosphere is casual to formal. The outdoor deck is great on a nice day. The staff are very helpful, competent and personable. It's a must try place if you're... More

We tried this place again after a long time. While we did not have a bad experience, there was nothing above average at all. Everything was just "fine". Atmosphere was pub style, lots of beer, we were there on a Saturday night and bar was very quiet but tables were full. I would recommend a reservation. Food was mediocre, service... More

Picked a place to eat dinner during our overnight in Geneva...and picked the right place. All the TVs were tuned to the NFL game and the excitement level was at its peak. Not loud, just lively. Service was well above average, so was the food. We were seated in a little booth-ette across from the bar that was a little... More

Stopped here while at the wineries for supper. Food was good, service was great but the beer wasn't that cold. Nicely decorated inside and the prices were reasonable.

We sat at the bar and had a beer - good service and a nice selection of brews. Then we ate in the dining room. Food was good but nothing extraordinary. We had the fish fry and a chicken caesar salad. All was pretty much typical. Nice atmosphere at the bar and in the dining room.

Upon arrival the restaurant does not have its own specific parking lot. It's not really an issue though as there is plenty of street parking plus it's a nice town to walk around and window shop. Inside is not huge, but very old pub style and would recommend reservations on weekends . Booths are very private. Open area dining room... More

My husband and I ate here for the first time while staying in Geneva between Christmas and New Years. Looked at the Trip Advisor reviews and decided to give this place a try. Everyone has different levels of standards when it comes to restaurants. The decor was reminiscent of an Irish Pub on a harbor--cozy. We arrived at 3 pm... More
