Blah at best

Here for lunch on the day after Christmas. Surprisingly the town was a bit dead - and the Friends was one of only two establishments open for lunch. The fact they were open was the best this place can be. Two of us. One had the "small" chicken salad and it was O.K. and rather large for being... read more

My husband, 6 year old son and I ate there for dinner on December 19, 2015. My son had fried shrimp. My husband and I had pork barbecue sandwich. The fried shrimp was very good. The pork barbecue was a little dry. They said that one of the sauces had some kick. Well, I guess I am used to spicy,... More

Stopped by on way to airport. Chad at the bar learns your name and uses it. No a big selection on tap, but the local option he suggested was good. Buffalo shrimp wrap was good but not great. I'll be back.

We arrived late on a Sunday hoping for some wings and beers and to catch the end of the games. Clearly the kitchen had shut down before we arrived - the wings were practically inedible and our complaints were met with a "sorry, the kitchen is shutting down". Maybe its better at other times, but avoid it on Sunday night... More

My girlfriend and I, started our evening, watching the Women's national soccer team World Cup Championship at Sammy'a Pub. We were asked to "tone it down, this is a family place." My girlfriend, assumed that it was because we were celebrating 4 goals in 16 minutes, Catlin Lloyd's midfield hat trick, and the USA in general to loudly, I thought... More

First time here with a friend from UK who comes here often. Very busy but wait staff did a good job getting drinks and food. They had Guinness on tap!

Atmosphere is a bit dirty. Wait staff was friendly but very slow. Waited 40 min for food, we had 6 people in our group. Drinks we had to go to the bar since the waitress seemed to forget about us after she brought water. Once the food arrived it was good, hot. Nothing over the top. The special announced (Reubin...

You would be hard pressed to find a better place to meet people and enjoy a drink. They are the home base for "Friends For Lawson" a very fine charity for children. Tim & Cindy, the owners are two of the finest people in town. Food is good Pub Grub, bartenders and wait staff are excellent!

We liked the description of this eatery. However, we tried unsuccessfully to locate it. We were told it was on Main street. After driving up and down Main street we decided to eat elsewhere.

This down-town bar is a great place to meet up with friends. It doesn't have a whole lot of tables, and the tables are right by the bar, but there is plenty of space throughout, as well as a cute little outdoor terrace area for smokers or people who prefer to eat outdoors. If you do choose to eat out... More
