A Mom and Pop pub with house made smoked meats at bargain prices. The Reuben Poppers appetizer gave us all the flavor and texture of a genuine Reuben rolled up into small, carraway flavored fried balls of deliciousness. How'd they do that?
My wife's BLT was delicious with the almost overpowering taste of smoke filling her mouth. Not like any belly bacon we'd ever had before.
The weakest item we had was my Ox Roast sandwich. Claiming to be thin sliced prime rib, it was so thin and overcooked as to be crumbly and an unfortunate gray color, none of the pinkness one expects in a good prime rib. Perhaps a little thicker slicing and less time on the steam table might be an improvement. Regardless, the sandwich was still a bargain and I left filled and satisfied.
We'd hoped to take away some of the house smoked Italian sausage and sandwich sliced ham, but had to settle for the ham and bacon instead. I can't identify the wood used, perhaps oak, but it was the same for both meats, lending them similar flavors. The smoke flavor is so overpowering as to leave a too long lingering flavor on the palate. If you're going to use a smoke that big and flavorful, it might be wise to cut back on the time a bit to mellow the flavor.
Nice, down home atmosphere, friendly service and just down the street from a pretty little beach. Highly recommended!
