The bar is the best. Fast service for food and drink with plenly of conversation. The mussels are super, especially with the garlic bread for sopping up the juice. It's not the typical hard rounds but nice, crunchy wedges perfectly seasoned. Lettuce for salad is fresh, chili is as expected. A truely good bar experience. Kid friendly, especially with balloon...

Stopped here not knowing what to expect. Glad I did. Staff was cheerful and prompt. Chose the meatloaf. WOW! Don't tell my mom, but this place has her beat. Extensive beer selection (sadly didn't get to sample as I was working.) If I'm ever in the area again, I will return. Thanks for such a great experience!

We visited the pub on the weekend before St. Patrick's Day and the bar was "hopping." The had very nice beer selection that was enjoyed by the beer critiques in our group.

Great place to go for lunch during a workday or after hours. It’s not overly crowded and the food is great. Friendly and courteous service. I ordered the wrong item on the menu and there was no problem changing it after it was prepared. The server took it back and replaced it--no charge. The booth seating is not cramped and... More

Had dinner on a Thursday night and sat at the main bar. Food was great, however, service was extremely slow. The two male bartenders working the main bar were more focused on talking to a few customers than waiting on the rest of the customers.

Good beer. Good crowd, but not overly crowded. Safe and little wait for a table. Decent prices and food.

If you like a loud lively place this is it. The loudness carries over I to the restaurant hard to have a good conversation. Food is just average and prices are high for what you get.
