This place is grungy. Dirty. The food is not good, the service is even worse. There are two female bartenders who blatantly ignore customers. Good place if you just don't care about your surroundings. Cheap drinks.

We were trying to find something a little less pricey with some charm. This place was perfect! Walls are decorated with dollar bills. The staff is super friendly. The food was very good. I had a chicken salad wrap and fries. Delicious. Would definitely recommend!

While walking to the Waterfront Park, we spotted The Griffin. Good classic music could be heard, which pulled us in. The atmosphere is unique and something to see. We went to the bar and was immediately greeted, order was taken and order received. There are dollar bills EVERYWHERE! It is so cool to see what people have written on them... More

Terrific fish and chips, chicken tenders were spot on, has a European pub feel. We are so happy we tried it. Would have been 5 stars, if we could have heard ourselves talk over the piped in music.

Many different beers to choose from. Thousands of dollar bills stapled to the walls everywhere. Ask for markers and a staple gun and you can dedicate a dollar bill to a loved one or anything you want.

We stopped in because the place we wanted to eat at was closed, and it turned out to be wonderful. It was about 3:30 on a Monday, there was one woman working the pub and one cook. They really hussled and were very friendly. The fish and chips and hamburgers were fantastic. Would definately recommend and would definately return there.... More

Fun place for late night partying. Nice people and grungy pub atmosphere, which I like. Bring a dollar to staple to the wall/ceiling. Just don't try to stand on the table to do it!

Ordered fried chicken and fish and chips. Food was good, but very disappointed with warm beer. Would have stayed longer and ordered more if the beer was cold.
