Very good Pub food with Great happy hour Drink Prices

Stopped here for a midweek dinner after a local recommendation and decent placement on the TripAdvisor reviews. Happy Hour (3p-6p) pints are only $3 compared to $5.75. The Bass-Ale Fish and Chips were very good, lightly breaded and very filling. My son had the Mac and Cheese which he said was... read more

The atmosphere is funky and cool, with exposed bricks throughout. There is an area upstairs for larger parties as well as balconies and outdoor seating. It is within a block of the Kellogg Arena, and within the downtown Battle Creek, Michigan region. The food is tasty and the drink prices are reasonable. Nice place to meet friends or have a... More

Try the fish tacos! More than you need for lunch, but couldn't stop eating them! Mild fish, great toppings, great flavor!

Pretty good place. I would like to see a few more authentic Irish Pub items on the menu (scotch eggs, etc). It would also be cool if they did an Irish/English breakfast on Sundays, but they are not open that day (most BC places are not).

This is a great place to buy different bar foods and brews. Beers are local to international as well as their food. Shepherds pie is a favorite and the taco appetizer is great to share. Sandwiches are also good and burgers. It is a family friendly place to eat in downtown Battle Creek.

I only stopped in for a drink and the waitstaff was very friendly. They had a great selection of beers, and their happy hour prices were good. I'd recommend, and go back again.

Great interior leads towards Irish charm. A tad expensive, but the quality was there. Lunch for two consisted of a Shepards Pie and pot roast, with one Bell's Winter Ale. Cost was $29, tip included. Nice change of pace if you are downtown Battle Creek.
