Lunch time

There were 4 of us for lunch. Menu was varied but a little pricey for what you got. All of us had different items and no complaints. Food took a while to get out and we were the only customers (got there early). They really didn't have much of a lunch crowd. Service was good.

I met a friend at Fat Squirrel. She'd already eaten the beef stew. Said it was quite good. I don't eat corn so I was pleased to discover they have "Irish Nachos", that use home made potato chips instead of corn chips. The chips were good, not all of them terribly crisp which verified they were made inhouse. The rest... More

They discontinued the popular buy 1 get 1 free appetizer program when ownership changed. To me, that was the only reason to go in there, especially on NFL Sundays. They have a passable chicken appetizer, as well as a very messy raw shrimp item (remember to ask for the wet bar towel!) that, 2 for 1, is a good deal.... More

Went there for dinner and to watch Monday night football.... The food was decent and the service was friendly and helpful. The burgers are Delightfully delicious and they have a great selection of beers on tap... The music is very good and they have free WiFi. I recommend this place and will be visiting again soon.

We went to a dinner meeting at this local pub bar and found the service and food satisfactory. The restaurant is clean with a plesant atmosphere. The menu has a good variety of typical pub fare (soups, salads, burgers, and entrees). My wife had the fried shrimp and I had the fish n chips. Adequate portions with tasty fish, NOT... More
