Good Food, Fun Atmosphere

This is your typical college town bar. The food is good and the atmosphere is fun. I tried the crab cakes and they were great!

I'm not sure what the big deal is about the nachos. I thought they were only fair. I had the veggie burger and it looked like a piece of you know what smooshed on a bun. I would have only given the restaurant one star but the rest of my party seemed to think their meal was adequate.

Your normal college town bar. We thought we would go back and give it a try since we have not been there in 4 - 5 years. Now I remember why, noisy, service was ok and the usual bar type of food. They rave about their nachos but I see nothing to rave about. You even had to ask for... More

Tuesday is half priced nachos. We had the regular one s and the buffalo chicken. Service was great and this is just a fun place to unwind and get some good food.

This bar is typical for a college scene. Good service, bar-type foods, and lots of booze. It is nice to sit outside in the fall or spring. They are dog friendly on the patio.

This old pub has been here since the mid 1700's and includes a history of being a former jail, and some of the original cells are reportedly still intact in the basement. I was immediately taken with its early American woodwork and chandelier. The service was fast, and waitress was knowledgeable and helpful. We shared a fresh, crisp salad, with... More

On New Year's Day a group of 6 of us attended their brunch. we all ordered different meals and it took over an hour to receive our order. Once we received it, some of the items were wrong, our server said the kitchen was backed up since they had a lot of ppl. Once we started eating it was terrible,... More

Been here a few times. Wide variety of sandwiches, burgers, salads as well as tasty appetizers. There's always a "special" that saves a few dollars from the regular price. All of us can find something we want. Friendly staff. Watch where you park - rules are enforced.

This is a bar and that's about it. If you are under 21 and want a lot of noise at night, this is probably your spot. I'm told it's the most crowded bar on the U of D campus. If you are looking for a place to eat, go elsewhere. The service was decent, but the food was sub par.... More
