I enjoy urban walks and walked around the state capitol before stopping in this place. It's across from the the state capitol and on a shaded corner street. I sat outside with my dog on the patio. The server was very attentive to me and even gave my dog extra water. I ordered a simple cheese burger and fries and... More

Yum! Yum! Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. We enjoyed this little establishment so much. We ordered the mussels (light on the spice), the cottage pie, the Irish nachos, and the meat lovers pizza and all were to our satisfaction. Many locals came in and they knew them by name. When locals and state employees visit, you know it's a... More

My husband and I ate here last night, arriving before dusk, which comes after 8 pm this time of year. The guy who seemed to be heading up things was rather brusque when we arrived and asked for a seat outside. There were multiple tables which had just been vacated and cleared but he told us to take any seat... More

I really don't like writing a negative report, but although I have enjoyed a number of good meals here before, if anything could have gone wrong the last time there I don't know what it could have been. There was a nice crowd on the outside patio, but I preferred to sit at a booth. I had to wait a... More

If you are someone who loves British food, then you will like The Firkin & Fox. Their fish & chips are authentic, as is their cottage pie & Guinness Meat & Mushroom pie. The service started out poorly, but by the end was pretty good. Our first waiter was lame, but when we mentioned it, they changed out to another... More

Great location to enjoy a outside meal near the Capital Bldg. Spoiled by an arrogant, rude waiter. Example: asked if they can cook a hamburger rare; response "need to know if you are going to order a hamburger first". Ordered the house hamburger with special sauce. Asked for additional sauce after it was delivered; response "what kind of sauce". I... More

We were enjoying a pretty good meal, when the nice atmosphere was ruined by VERY LOUD and ABNOXIOUS Cowboy Karaoke!!! Thought a Monday night would be a good time to visit, but we were wrong! Suggest diners call the restaurant before going there to find out what's going on. Our plan for a quiet visit with friends was not to... More

1) Great food - 3rd time there and still impressed. 2) Great service - someone in this place cares about customer service it would seem, 3) Clean and attractive - not something you always see in a Pub. Easily one of the best places to eat in Carson City. Irish nachos - YUM. Great salads, great beer. Could use a... More

Now that the High Sierra Brewery has closed, we now come here for that same friendly atmosphere and great happy hour specials. The staff are great, the pricing reasonable, and good food. Great selection of on tap brews too!

Very historic area near the State Capitol and other State government buildings. The pub is located in an old, historic hotel. The atmosphere of the interior is comfortable and inviting, as is the outdoor seating area facing West 3rd Street. The beers of the local Carson City brewery, High Sierra Brewing Co., is served here and they are quite delicious.... More
