Don't always shoot the server.....

I’ve been to this bar many times over the past few years, mostly as an “after work” pit stop, it totally amazes me that people even bother coming back to this place, first time in I asked about drink specials, “we don’t have a happy hour, never did” a fact they seem to be proud of. As for the... read more

Went here for the second time. Both times I had good meals each titime. The menu is quite simple, with food of all walks of life and should leave with a full stomach. I had the southern chicken breast with onion rings which were in substitute of the fries. All in all it is a simple place for tavern style... More

Run down poor food and poor service a local hole in the wall. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

Great outdoor patio, somewhat dark inside, but still nice. Always has very pleasant staff. Incredible selection of beers. I go there often as the food is very good usually--esp pan fried haddock (get the lemon peper--the cajun overtakes the haddock flavor. Burgers good, reuben burger good. Stay away from the haddock burger-tiny piece of haddock, big bun--you end up not... More

The beer and service was good. However I can't understand why the wings could be so overcooked. There were only a few people in the establishment. "Only wings I guess". Who cares. 12.00 bucks waisted.

My wife and I visited here while on vacation. This was the closest pub and within walking distance to where we were staying. We were there on a Saturday evening and it was karaoke night. The pub was mostly full and patrons were really into the singing. It seemed like most of the people were regulars. We were just there... More

I went to the Lions Head for an informal business lunch and found what I expected. The food was typical for a local pub and the service was just ok. Parking was a nightmare for this location and we ended up having to park in the street around the corner. The weather was nice so we sat outside on the... More

This place is alright. Typical pub. I've been there before in the evenings for karaoke, and twice for food. The waitresses were very nice. The food was alright. Other members of my group were really impressed with their chicken burgers, but I just had a salad both times. I like that there are a couple of interesting ideas for salads.... More

The only pub on the north end. Just a normal pub with pub food. Friendly service and good atmosphere to just hang out with friends.

This is a pub/tavern so the decore, menu and service is very much in keeping with this. We had nachos and they were alright with a fair amount of cheese. The Shepherd's Pie was delicious and I'd recommend. A good pub must have a decent beer selection and serve it cold. The Lion's Head scores on both counts. The menu... More
