“Bare bones...”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Upon entry, you can't help but notice a big bar, TV, white board, dart boards, some tables/chairs and the left-over nautical theme from the previous occupants. That's it! The friendly waitress gave us our pub menu and set down a bowl of popcorn - not chips and salsa, but popcorn! Prices are reasonable; portions not particularly substantial. The advertised hand-cut nachos were drenched in melted Velveeta with some jalapenos thrown on top and a dollop of sour cream, refried beans, and guacamole on the side of the plate. The same refried beans, which taste like they came from a can, accompanied our order - fish tacos. They weren't bad but lacked that "punch" generally associated with Mexican food. The cabbage slaw on the tacos was nothing more than shredded cabbage. If it had been marinated, that taste was hard to find. The salsa serve with the order was finely chopped red and yellow peppers, seasoned with black pepper. All in all, unless you're looking for a cold beer or other drink, find some place else to go.
