Nice crowd of locals around the lounge/bar area

We frequent this pub type restaurant 1-2 times per month,, sometimes once a week ! The food is good, what you would expect from a pub type restaurant.. The best night is Tuesdays, Prime Rib Night !!

Totally disappointed by our recent dining experience here. Went on a Sunday evening and waited waay too long for our food in a not crowded place with 3 cooks working! I believe there's a relatively new chef there, as evident of the menu and price changes, but no excuses for the horribly long wait for a burger and basic piece... More

We were humbled to read your review. We truly apologize for the long wait that you experienced Sunday evening. Food was coming out from the kitchen more slowly due to a couple of different things that night. While we did have 3 cooks in the kitchen, we were missing one of our key people on the line. We just launched... More

The staff allows you to enjoy your visit there without rushing you out. Their sweet potato fries are the best anywhere

We've eaten here several times since moving to the area and have been pleasantly surprised. The building and decor say "Local Hangout Bar" but the food choices lean more towards imaginative pub fare than your typical bar food. It can get crowded, but service is good and everyone's friendly there. Prices are okay to me but some items may seem... More

We have been going here for years and always liked it. We were there a few weeks ago and had an unpleasant experience. I had ordered a stuffed chicken with risotto. When I cut the chicken breast in half, the chicken was pink. I called the waitress over and she took my plate out to the kitchen. She came back... More

Hi Nanapat8669, We are very sorry to hear that your meal was not edible. Of course with our new chef we are going through some changes but that is no excuse for raw chicken. Please never hesitate to ask for a manager if a situation was not handled correctly. If you ever approach a manager with a complaint about your... More
