Stumbled upon Coles by accident. We had hoped to eat at another nearby place but it was closed. Coles was a less than suitable substitute. The decor is the nicest part of this restaurant. The host was preoccupied with his cell phone and only looked up to seat us when it became obvious we weren't going to leave. I guess... More

Stopped in here for out interconnecting flight to Las Vegas, Took ages for tables to be cleared of empty plates. Barry our server was quite rude...even another customer who was sat at bar commented on how unhelpful he was being. Food wasn't bad but as usual overpriced.. always is at an airport! Just shame they don't have a good reason... More

Cole's has a great friendly atmosphere. The sandwiches were great and if hot mustard is your thing Cole's has got a winner! The garlic fries were very tasty. I tried the Bourbon Pecan Pie and it was delicious.

Best old fashioned cocktail I've ever had.... And I've had a lot! Garlic fries to die for. I've since recommended the place to at least 5 visitors

We went to get a Phillippe Double Dip Sandwich (as seen on Man Vs Food) but it was packed so we decided against it. We then found Coles off Main Street next to our hotel and had a very similar sandwich there instead. It was very good, but messy in a fun way because you dip the sandwich yourself instead... More

This is a great place for a French Dip sandwich, the rest of the menu is irrelevant (though it might be good...). The sandwich is great, and the "atomic mustard" (if you like it really strong) is the best I've tasted in America. Good selection of draft beers, an absolute necessity to wash down the mustard!

Great spot to get some drinks and the Lamb Dip was Excellent. Great... More

We came here for a bite to eat with friends. The place has great old school charm and was great! The drinks were prepared with panache and the french dips were terrific - garlic frys were great and the banana cream pie with caramel for dessert a great way to end the meal.

So I was visiting a couple of Lawyer Buddies that said we should have lunch here. Lawyers usually know the law, but not food. Legal files in hand we walked 6 blocks. They obviously knew the way. We ordered the steak French dip it was amazing, fries the bomb. Then dessert. Oh Man. So good. Pies Pies and More Pies.... More
