Great food at a reasonable price

Great food, very relaxed atmosphere. The dining room and bar are separte and there is also an outside patio. Sandwiches and salads were very good and service was good too.

The place was very busy and we were lucky to get a table for two. The waitress and the manager were constantly on the run, getting orders and serving the meals. I have never seen such fast good service and great meals-not skimpy! I had mussels and the wife had a large sandwich-both excellent. Plenty parking in the back of... More

It is still a good place for casual American food for lunch or dinner. It just isn't what it was a few years back. the various items are good but average, nothing out of the ordinary and very predictable. That's not necessarily a bad thing especially for the summer tourists but a few years back it was more in line... More

I probably go here ATLEAST 3 times a month. My favorite item that I crave is the buffalo shrimp. The blue cheese on the side is amazing. The customer service is awesome and I love bringing friends and family here. Great for all ages! There is a bar area and a more private seated area as well. Wonderful!

Cool atmosphere. Extensive pub menu. Lots to choose from. Never dissapoints. They even had chargers for cell phones! If you like pub food, this is your place.

Use to be a considerably more reasonably priced place to eat but now it's pretty expensive. Hamburgers start at $12.50 and can go up to $15 or higher depending on additional toppings. The hamburgers come with a handful of potato chips. French fries used to be included but now their $1.90 extra. On the bright side they threw in a... More

We look forward to our weekly dinner at Chips. I think it is having Jackie as our server and Troy as our bartender. We walk in and she doesn't have to tell Troy what we want to drink. Two Gimlets...gin..straight up. Perfect every time. Wings...extra sauce...not a problem. Happy with this place!

Could be such a cool place but there is a clear lack of management. Each visit proved deceiving: floors littered, obviously not familiar with brooms, loud kids allowed in bar area with nobody to tell them they do not own the bar and that some customers would like to hear themselves talk so as to have a semi decent conversation......

I've been going to this restaurant since it's been opened, and I think the only reason it survives is because it's one of the only sit-down restaurants in the town. The food is overpriced and always just...OK to bad. It's pub food, but it's never put together right. Sandwiches and salads lack fillings, food overall lacks flavor (besides grease), and... More

We have been enjoying Chips Pub on Sunday's. The food is great. Our favorite appetizer is Buffalo Shrimp and Buffalo Chicken. Their burgers are amazing and the cobb salad is excellent. The bartender on Sundays is right on! Excellent Gimlets.
