I like to try and get to know all the places I stop, and these guys made it easy. With a local flare via the wall of personal numbered beer mugs for local regulars, to the chatty customers at the bar ad the bar staff, an all around win that reminds me why I love the East Coast.

This used to be one of my favorite places, (see my previous review) however after my last visit I am not sure if I will ever be back! The food was mediocre, which I could have overlooked, however, service was incredibly slow and not friendly. Once we got our food we were reminded several times that "trivia night" was starting...

We decided to have dinner here since the menu looked good and they are a local micro brew. Sadly all elements were a bit of a let down. To start off it was a busy friday night, service was slow, but friendly. It's one thing if your busy and things get backed, it's another to completely forget to enter a... More

Second stop on our "MooseHead" Pub Crawl from our cruise ship. Manager gave us a tour of how the beer is brewed. Sampled 3 different kinds of beer...some enjoyed the Blue Berry. Had a few appetizers....very tasty. Very clean place....excellent tour by the manager.

Not only were the fish & chips I ordered the greasiest I had ever had, but they had so much breading that I could hardly find the fish! The beer was tasty but the glass was warm! If it wasn't for the cruise ships coming in, this place wouldn't have a chance because I can't imagine having any repeat customers!

We all had fish and chips, onion rings. Very enjoyable. We would all go back when we are in Saint John, again. The next time we will try Yorkshire pudding dinner. Tried sampler beers first. Then beer and wine.

While we didn't eat here, the beer was all good and the service was also. It was warm in the main bar, but the back part by large windows worked well. We came back three nights with consistent service and beer quality.

I had been there before, liked it, it's fairly typical pub fair. We went there this time mainly because I wanted to fill my growlers with their excellent beer. Both my wife and I decided to go with something different for a change, I had the Hot Thansgiving Club and she had the Italian Chicken. Both were great. Now, I'm... More
