It is what it is

Having stopped by a few times for drinks and the occasional bite to eat, I can say before walking in that you should expect your experience to be exactly what looking at the exterior of the building suggests: old, dated and dingy, however somewhat historic. If you're looking for a gourmet meal and... read more

Charming local bar, where regulars meet to eat and buy drinks for the house. Many university students are found there taking a break. Great time during St Patty's Day too!!!

Went to the bar this past weekend to attend a party that was being held there. Only had a $100 bill in my wallet which I used to buy TWO pints. When I got home, found that the bartender only gave me $65 back. Error on my part for not counting my change. Went back to the bar and the... More

I have been here for drinks only in the past and a quick stop recently while hungry made my partner and I decide to order some food. While this was only one experience, both of our orders were not pleasant and we are generally not difficult to please. I am not sure about other menu items but the fish and... More

I have been here a few times and have never been disappointed in the food. The quality is great and the taste also really good. Stopped in for lunch on a Thursday afternoon. Homemade split pea and ham soup with a short rib hoagie. $8.99 special. The amount we got was huge. The service was great and the beer was... More

I use to frequent this place quite often, and moved away in 2001. My wife and I just returned, and it was a "must go" to place. WOW! Has it ever changed. We arrived on a Tuesday, at noon. Only one other couple were in the restaurant! It was dirty, and the service was VERY slow. The food was horrible,... More

One of my go to places for drinks and a pulled pork. Pulled pork is one of the best in town, patio is perfect to relax and have a few drinks while watching some volleyball. Service is always good, Perfect little place!!!

Went for lunch last week. We had time before we had to be someplace on the west side, so we stopped in. I had not been there for a couple of years, but nothing changed. The server was attentive and took our orders promptly. Our lunch arrived and we felt it was very good. We should not wait another couple... More

In my university years this was the place to go for great pub food and drinks!! Well that was over 35 years ago and I can honestly say that the DH still looks the same & smells the same ( old beer and stale air). They have not put any money or effort into maintaining a decent pub. What a... More

I love the DH. It's one of the few Traditional Pubs in Windsor. It has a vast history dating back to the rum running days...and you can feel the age of the pub as you step inside. It might look kind of like a dump at first, but it has a certain charm to the old building. They have a... More
