KW and I have been here to see sporting event - it's fab for that. And the food is surprisingly excellent pub food - but it's not pub food because they actually make the food on the premises vs. buying from a restaurant supply chain. Wonderful selection of beers - KW is a home brewer for many years and a... More

The Saloon makes a good first impression: lots of screens for watching spots, amazing draught beer selection, large, creative menu. We came to see a World Cup game and were delighted to see that they had a special menu commemorating all of the competing nations. But, the special menu is available only on Wednesdays during the World Cup. They were... More

Our server wasn't sure if they had boneless buffalo tenders, the fish in the tacos was burned, the burger too fatty, salad pretty plain and the wine watered down. When we wanted to pay our bill and get out of there our server was nowhere to be found. May go back for beer and possibly the tenders, but everything else... More

I've been to Magoun's a handful of times. The environment is relaxing and it's a great place to watch the game. It has an impressive draft beer selection and an equally impressive menu. The only downfall is the service. It seems as if they ignore you once they get your order and they are often forgetful, but if your easygoing... More

Was going out with friends to a show in the area. We decided on this place due to its menu. So glad we went it was great. I had the Portabello Melto and my boyfriend had a B.L.T. We both very happy with our meals. I was with a party of 12 people and we were seated immedidately no problem.... More

This is my local pub. I love this place! Huge rotating beer menu (30ish beers on tap), great food every time I've gone, and awesome specials. If you can make it for their Wednesday specials, I would highly recommend them. The brunch is particularly awesome: Jameson-soaked French Toast, Magners-glazed apples, and Bailey's whipped cream. And that is just my favorite... More

My friends & I went St. Patty's weekend, and that was a mistake since this is an "irish pub". This quaint little place can get very crowded - SRO. Good sign, but table seating to eat seems to be first come, stay as long as you want. The hostess kept promising us a table and actually asked us to hover... More

I'd never been to this place before, despite it being close to my apartment. The neighborhood appears a bit rough, sign said to seat ourselves when we arrived, and it took ~12 minutes to have a waitress appear to take our drink order. It appears that they have a different specialty menu every month. We were lucky enough to go... More

We love this place because it's a quaint pub. I want to love it more, but there are always a few things that leave me wanting it to be better. I love the cute atomosphere. I love the little white/red/different lights they have up around the whole pub for holidays. I love the little fire place. I love all the... More
