Going down hill .

The food was good but the service was barely average . The place needs a really good cleaning . The dust on the rafters is a inch thick and over all not clean .

I had a hot hamburger sandwich with fries. A huge serving that was piping hot on the table. My friend had a lobster roll and fries, and we both enjoyed our meals. The server was great, and friendly. The prices were very reasonable. Everyone in the place seemed to be in a good mood.

It was not the freshest tasting and it took a while to get it considering they weren't very busy. The staff were not overly... More

This is a typical pub food experience and the food is good. I like their lobster rolls and I had fries with mine.

The food was excellent, service was quick. The prices were resonable, and the atmosphere is rustic, which is very nice!!

I will never support this resteraunt again after witnessing the physical and verbal abuse the bouncers dished out to an individual. I brought it to the owners attention she simply laughed and said he must of deserved it.. wow.

Food is really good and reasonably priced. The owners are wonderful, very friendly. There are some really neat props to see there and also has a little dance floor.

I went with friends to the Engine Room for lunch and had the chicken wings with potato skins. The wings were crispy and delicious (I chose not to have them covered in sauce but has some on the side:) and the skins were covered in bacon, green onion and cheese. Fabulous!! My friends had pizza and fish and chips and... More
