This is a favorite place for my husband and I. The food is scrumptious, the staff are very friendly, the atmosphere is great. Be sure to try the Bailey's cheesecake....it is soooooo good.

The wait was about 20 minutes, so we decided to eat at the bar instead. Turned out to be a great idea! The bartender took our drink orders immediately and set us up with menus. We got the Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas and the Chili Nachos- both were delicious! Definitely get the Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla- SO good. The atmosphere was casual... More

It's tough to sit inside this place and enjoy the experience. It needs to be updated and cleaned.

About to celebrate an important anniversary (?20? years)... went back after a reasonable weak experience a few years ago. WOW! lunch menu is expansive and fresh - great choices for american pub food. Pricing is excellent and service was good. Glad they are bringing a lot more local bands back; need to figure out how to find out more about... More

Worth it if you plan on drinking, they have a good selection on beers on tap. They also have very good Blue Cheese dressing. It's a little Grubby, but acceptable for the average "Grab a bite" meal

On the weekends they have a band, nice bar, great quality, awesome staff, and good food! Not expensive either. The baked scallops are excellent and they have my favorite clam chowder!! They also have a private bar/room upstairs that you can rent for a small party. Its a great place for late night drinks with friends as well! We go... More

Our Sturbridge fiasco ended here. We tried going to the Cedar Street Grille, were seated but never waited upon. We left and came here. We were promptly seated and served at The Admiral's. Keep in mind that it's a pub, not fine dining. I ordered the fish and chips which were on special. OUTSTANDING. The fish, which my husband identified... More

Went to this place in Sturbridge. Just wanted a simple lunch. First, got there at 1:15. It was busy but not overly so. Ordered a beer and lunch, one of the specials. The beer was a micro brew, but having had it before, it was not fresh. So be it, we stopped for lunch. 45 minutes later, a bad lunch... More

Such a fun little tavern. They had a great band playing and a lot of people but it never got out of control. We only went for drinks so I can't say how the food was.
