Landed and went straight here for lunch on a local recommenation. Absolutely amazing salad, boyfriend had a killer poutine. For a simple meal in a friendly dive-y kind of location, you can't go wrong.

Avoid this place unless you really have a burning desire to wait an hour for your meal on the world's most uncomfortable bench. Any restaraunt that can't get food out quickly should at least provide padded seating. And forget passing the time by having a conversation with your dinner companion; the acoustics are so awful that you have to yell... More

This place was recommended by the motel we stayed in. Very unprepossessing from the outside, but my word just fabulous food. Really recommend the charcuterie plate, best I have had in many years and I spend a lot of time on the road. Great beer, wine list is OK, pizzas to die for. A real gem in TB

Yes it's loud there...but IMHO you don't go there for anything but the unbelievable food!!! Last night my bf and I had the pancetta and goat cheese pizza and the latkes. It was phenomenal. We had the Spanish pizza and duck poutine on our last (and my first) visit. I would recommend any of these dishes any day of the... More

I had such an unpleasant experience at this place not bc of the food but because of the staff. My first visit constituted being served by an abrasive male bartender who didn't introduce their promo and who took 30 minutes to take our beer order, who we had to flag down to serve us. Who put us on a waiting... More

Awesome pub in downtown PA. Try the fried chicken, it is soooo good. Turns into a great bar later in the night. Always busy, which is a good sign.

We all enjoyed our food and the comfortable surroundings. Just found it very loud as the crowd grew. We also had excellent service. Overall it was a nice evening and eat here again.

It really makes a difference going to a restaurant where they actually care about having fresh delicious ingredients. So amazing! What a fun atmosphere. Only draw back is its hard to get in to this place to sit down and eat because its such a small building and there are never any tables available.

The menu this week was Mexican on Friday. Soup was Black Bean and extraordinary, robust flavors. I had corn fried cod fish tacos that were terrific. Order of two. This restaurant has an eclectic, diverse menu each week. Innovation and imagination are exciting factors to this gastronomic delight. Apparently the menu is released on Face Book Wed. of each week.... More
