We love the boneless buffalo wings, selection of beer and the service, The waitress makes a good recommendation of the beer and we love being able to try it first before ordering.

During our recent college tour over spring break, we had dinner at this pub. We found the burgers & fries to be tasty and the beer selection was plentiful. We got seated quickly and the service was friendly. I wouldn't say that there is anything special about this pub, as it's just like most other pubs I visit - including... More

After reading some of the reviews here we were hesitant to try this restaurant. I'm glad we decided to go. We stopped in today for lunch since we were out and we were getting hungry. Although it was noon there were plenty of tables available. We were seated right away and greeted promptly. Our server was very pleasant. We placed... More

After driving around the town seeing what is around, my wife and I went to the Purple Pub for lunch. We arrived at the tail end of the lunch hour. We ordered some wings and a sandwich. Good food and atmosphere. Very good beer selection!! We will come back here again for dinner when we come back to the area.

Good sport bar type food (burgers, fries, etc.). Decent selection of beers on tap and in bottles. College crowd. Cozy on a cold night.

Awesome location and great bar. It is expensive for a pub food and I really wouldn't mind to pay if the food is great, but unfortunately it is not the case at Purple Pub. I really hope to see them working on the food. The service also needs to improve.

I was here visiting with my husband and found the restaurant and bar a great place to visit. The ambiance is great and the service as well. Would definitely frequent here if I was a local!

We came on a Friday when there was karaoke going on which was fun to watch. We just had drinks so I can't evaluate the food. The two bartenders working were completely disinterested in the customers. They were more interested in taking shots themselves than getting other people drinks. Service was incredibly slow for the amount of people there. I... More
