“Not that great!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

Went recently with a group of people. They put us in a large room away from the main dining area. It was cold and not the greatest atmosphere. For starters, the artichoke dip was very good, although the pita chips were not - if not from a bag they tasted like it. The potato skins were over cooked and soggy. The deep fried green beans were very good. I ordered a burger was ok - I ordered medium and it was well done. Another person ordered rare and it came well done. The french fries were terrible - skinny and over cooked. The bathrooms were filthy and no paper towels to dry hands. But, our waitress was great! Very attentive and remembered what everyone ordered. Good beer selection. Sad to say it was not worth the money and I would not go there again.

“NO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

If you only want a beer...go there. For food and atmosphere go somewhere else. Half the building is closed and dark. The bar is lonely and boring.... was not even fun for Sunday Night Football. Place was empty.
Pub food not so great. Too bad the last two restaurants there went away. They were good... This place NOT GOOD.
