I cannot give this place enough stars! I ate brunch there for the first time this past Saturday and went back Sunday. We sat at the bar where the bartender, Matt, was very friendly, attentive and made the BEST mimosas (champagne with a splash of OJ). The food was unbelievable! My boyfriend had the lump crab cakes eggs benedict and... More

I really mean it! This restaurant is sort of a tavern. It has a bar and a nice area for dining. The menu has lots of good choices, is reasonably price, and has good variety to choose from. This a neat place for families as well as just adults. Try it. You will enjoy it. Wait staff was terrific too.

Was here on a Friday night. Seated right away. Sat outside, which was nice. A number of empty tables inside and out. Food is pub food with sandwiches, salads, and entrees. Average prices. The beer and wine was fine. Salads were good. Chopped salad was really a mixed green salad with avocado, apple, bacon and cheese. The warm spinach salad... More

The place was packed but the awesome bartender that was working kept up with everyone and made the best drinks! Everyone was having a great time and the girls were dancing up a storm where all the...

Pleasant pub atmosphere, festive and energetic on a recent Friday night. Seated quickly. Fairly typical pub food menu with predominance of sandwiches, burgers and a few main course items and specials. We ordered the fish and chips, lamb burger and the Lake sandwich. The fish and chips were average, with a single small piece of fried fish and soggy fries.... More
