The burgers and chicken sandwiches are the best I've ever had. Very high quality meat and the pretzel buns are awesome. Onion strings and dipping sauce are a must.

The chicken po' boy foldover is very delicious. The buffalo chicken sandwich is very tasty and juicy. I love the vast selection of bottled and drafts beers. Every sunday is 25% of all domestic and micro brew bottled beers. I love take my family there for the amazing service and top notch food.

I bought a groupon for this place and am I ever glad I did! Wow! A bunch of us went there and we all ordered something different and we took a sampling of each thing. Everything was very fresh and delicious! The meatloaf melt, turkey and cheddar sandwich, tuna pita, blt...was awesome! Can't wait to go back!

It's truly the pub experience: very noisy in the evening and quite crowded with close tables. But if you don't mind talking loud, the food is really good with a terrific selection of beers. The burgers and other offering are excellent. I just had the blue cheese burger and chili and both were super good.

Because we had gotten there a few minutes before the brunch started we were asked to sit at a table near the bar for some complimentary coffee. The... More

Overpriced, slow service, so-so food. This place supports Elgin and the community in a big way, which must be why people keep coming back. Have been there countless number of times and always found it ok. It's gone downhill lately.
