Best breakfast on Gulf Boulevard. Their three egg omelets are so large they are hard to finish. These are made to order with ingredients cut fresh. If you were a fan of The Pubs old chicken wings, they are now HERE! They also have a daily all-you-can-eat which are all delicious. Don't be afraid that it is a bar! I... More

We walked here from our rental and when we entered the restaurant we were completely ignored. We made our way to the bar and eventually we given menus. I ordered an asparagus and spinach omelet and my husband got the basic eggs breakfast. Suggestion for the chef - only use the tips or chop up the spears into bite size... More

Stayed near the Tsvern at the San Remo Apartments so we decided to nip in for a drink. They were re enacting a Seinfeld "Festivus " evening. The bar staff were extremely pleasant and made you feel very welcome. Spoke to a few regulars who were all very nice. Highly recommended.

I hate to write a great review not to attract tail holes to ruin the place but it's a great clean wholesome place with great staff and clientele. Karaoke is first class and competitive. I really am pleased to find such a cozy friendly venue. Staff is wonderful and professional.

Stopped because who doesn't like a "Friendly" tavern. Ignored by the waitress and rudely served by the bartender. Maybe it's friendly to regulars and locals but not so much to travelers.

The karaoke jockey was very good, nice and fun! The food was delicious and the service was also good. We can't wait to go back! We were able to sing several songs and the crowd was not rowdy, just right.

Very nice Friendly place, just like it says. This is an older establishment, been here since at least 1997, when we came to town. Kind of like an Aussie pub experience, lots of friendly customers as well as the server. We don't do Kareoke, but we love to come here on Kareoke nights to listen to others. There are some... More

This is our second time here, and we actually went out of our way for the second trip. The food is delicious and the prices can't be beat. Great location and very friendly staff. Will definitely make this a place to frequent when in FL.
