“Fun Tavern.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2013

The Friday night fish fry is the best during Lent. 3 or 4 different kinds of endless fried fish available. All good, their fries are also endless as is their delishous cloe slaw.

“Good pizza if ordered well done but..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2013

Good pizza if ordered well done but very skimpy on the toppings. I think we found 4 small pieces of pepperoni on a large pie. Every thing else was o.k.

“Good neighborhood bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

This is one of those neighborhood bars where they recognized the 'regulars'. They run a lot of specials - from bands to karaoke, to Elvis night. They have a large outdoor seating area where there are bags and volleyball in warmer weather.

“Could use some customer service training”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Pizza toppings are great,crust is very tough. Excellent salads with site made dressings which were wonderful. Visit this joint when our group is in town, they are not very welcoming. The waitress was very bad. Spent time sitting at the bar. Drinks were continuously given to incorrect person. Any request resulted it item being given to wrong person with total indifference. Great place to watch a game. Could really be a great destination with a little attention to detail.

“Neighborhood Bar”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

I am not a fan of the pizza or the clientele much, but the burgers and chicken fingers are pretty good. The chicken fingers are breaded chicken pieces and appear to be made there. They are better than out of the bag typical fingers you get in a bar. It is local. The service is pretty good.
