Special Trip

Went here due to craft beer selection and reviews on their food. Went on a Sunday so had brunch menu that was good but limited. Drank a beer and waited for full menu to be available at 2pm.....Had burgers and sandwiches and all were excellent. Highly recommend burgers. Good selection of beer.

So worth the trip for an amazing burger. Undoubtedly the BEST burger I've ever had. Impressive draught beer list with all the beers poured in their correct glassware. Chili was worth a cup too. Great whiskey selection. Good place to catch a game too. Looking forward to a return trip.

We went because it is close to our club facility down the block. The specialty is beer; this attracted my wife who had two Sam Adams Chocolate Bocks. Because my medications do not allow alcohol, I can't really comment on this. The food here is acceptable. As expected, it is mostly sandwiches. The burger I had (Dublin) was tasty and... More

This is an irish bar with actually quite a big selection of food that is quite tasty. Additionally the beer selection is quite large as well. I wouldn't recommend going on a big game night as it turns into a raving sports bar - unless you're of course looking for this type of a thing.

Beer list = impressive, lots of local micro and nanobrews and specialty items Food = mediocre, uninspired, overpriced Service = unattentive, cold, uninviting. Best for sitting at the bar trying great beers.

We are staying at an airbnb just 10 mins walk from this excellent pub, recommended to us by our host. Great find & perfect place to relax after our very long sightseeing days. We have found the service, both very friendly & efficient. Good choice of beers and we have enjoyed the food too, the home fries in particular. Gets... More

This is my neighborhood bar and I have to say, it's most certainly my favorite! They always offer a solid beer selection and it will ALWAYS come in the proper glass, which I think is a sign of a great bar. Between my husband and I we've pretty much tasted the entire menu over the course of 4 years we've... More

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
