“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014 via mobile

Made a point of going here as it serves brisket which I have been keen to try for a while. Unfortunately the brisket was a huge letdown - dry and tough and slathered in so much barbecue sauce that you couldn't really taste it anyway. The accompanying sprouts with bacon and corn bread were nicer than the main attraction. At the end of the meal, I think I just managed to replace my fork on the table before the waiter whisked my plate away (despite the place being half empty). Overall, not impressed.

“Family friendly food - very reasonable prices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014 via mobile

Friendly server. Prompt service. Fish tacos were very good. Side order of Brussels sprouts with bacon were SO good! Sub par beer menu (at least for what is on draft).

“Delcious Brisket and Baked Beans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

The Pub is downstairs at the Square so it is easy to miss but the burgers are huge and juicy, the Texas Beef Brisket is cooked to perfection and served with delicious bake beans. The menu features gluten-free chicken and fish tacos and plenty of other mouth-watering choices. The service is friendly and efficient. I'd go back any time.

“Tasty ribs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

The service was fast and the food very tasty. The ribs with sides were 17 usd and the whole meal for three was 75 usd. We would go there more often if it would be in our way.
