We tried this place 2x. Once with kids for lunch and once as a couple. I really wanted to love it. Outside seating, good location, rustic interior w/ fireplace and leather couch. But the menu... Disappointed. Nothing healthy. Pub food is ok sometimes but this is a short menu and food was nothing special. Fine for an app and a... More

This is one of those neighborhood gems that you don't know about unless you ask a local, or read TripAdvisor. We are in the area for a graduation, and our hotel is near the interstate so we can't walk anywhere. We looked up where to eat, and did some research on TripAdvisor - this place sounded like us. Drinks, apps,... More

They have great hot wings (some of the hottest I've tried) and burgers. Everything I've tried there has been good. It's as good as it gets for pub / bar food and a nice environment for chatting.

Nice restaurant with good Kobe Beef Hamburgers! A little pricey but worth it for the taste and quality. Only have eaten there once. Will go again.

First and foremost, this is a Tavern, not a family restaurant. If you're looking for a place to take the kids I'd suggest continuing up the road about a half mile in either direction. If you're looking for a Tavern, this place is great. The staff are very friendly and helpful, though most of the time they seem a little... More

Came in here with a couple friends for lunch. Got the wings and the kobe burger and both were really tasty. Service was a little slow but I think it was because the waitress was pretty much taking care of the whole place. She made a mistake and said a beer wasn't available on draft when it actually was and... More

We stopped in because we were looking for a non-franchise restaurant. I thought the decor totally fit the "tavern" vibe. Menu wasn't huge but it had plenty of choices! I had the braised short ribs and I couldn't finish it all. They melted in my melt. My husband chose the Kobe burger/fries and he said he would order it again.... More

My group of three, one of which was a 7 year old, stopped in at an off hour on Saturday afternoon (Thanksgiving weekend). We were able to find a table in the back corner upon walking in. The draft selection is limited however the bottled selection suited us just fine. We ordered the chorizo fondue, mac&cheese and french onion soup.... More

Sat at the bar, looking for some good food and a beer. Tap selection is weak but bottle menu is pretty deep. Sitting at the bar, I can see the kitchen and the cleanliness discipline seems pretty lax. Chef is eating while cooking , which is setting the tone. Ordered kobi sliders against my bether judgement, because I am hungry.... More
