Quaint little Pub.

The food is good but this pub has limited tables for dining inside and the lighting is poor. When weather permits, you can dine on the outdoor patio which is quite nice. They have specials on different nights. Wednesday is 1/2 price wing night and is quite popular. Overall a nice spot.

Really enjoyed being seated on upper balcony listening to outdoor band on patio below. Food was good, service was attentive and we really enjoyed basil mash drinks and spicy Caesars.

I was Mr. Mom last week so naturally that meant take the kids to local restaurants fest. Our trip to the Wiz was a big success. I didn’t get the waitresses name (I wish i had) because she was polite, efficient and great with the kids. The kids each had the fish n chips and were both extremely happy with... More

Usually a great place to eat, but one bad night ends this. Loaded potatoe soup served cold and scummed over surface,with a slight chaulky taste. Stay away from the super salty spinach dip served in a soup bowl slopped over everwhere, with bread bits the size of croutons and flat bread deep fried to the point it slides off the... More

I've never been treated so dismissively by wait staff as I and my party of 7 were here. It was not a busy night this summer, yet we waited ten minutes for menus and then ANOTHER ten to place our drink orders, given to a bored waitress who did not meet the eye of anyone at the table, nor apologized...

So, to be clear, I didn't eat here. Was delivering product to their back-of-house. While I can't comment on the quality of their food I did want to mention that their kitchen (of which I have seen hundreds) is amongst the cleanest and most organized I have ever seen. In their reefer, all the sauces they use are stickered in-house... More

I guess we should have known better than to take the advice of a guy working at Home Hardware. But he did say the food was really good and that the new chef was amazing and...and...and...we bought in. Maybe the chef only works at night because the lunch was extremely boring. We had a "peameal melt" with side caesar -... More

A late September Friday - Sunny but a bit cool on the patio but we were determined (as were a lot of diners). The specials caught our fancy and the Cabbage Roll Soup was the clear winner over the Chicken on Ciabatta which was huge yes....but the soup was spectacular! We asked for bread with the soup and were given... More

Five of us went to this restaurant because it had an outdoor seating area. That was the only good thing. Food service was extremely slow. Waitress told us our food was coming soon, after we had waited almost an hour and we still waited another ten or more minutes. Plus the food came in dribs and drabs. The special of... More
