I had never visited this restaurant before and it was great. The food was awesome (must try the pulled pork sandwich). The drink were reasonable and the service was very good.

The food here is excellent. Not what you expect from pub food. The Lobster Chowder is phenomenal! The first time I was here the chowder came with a giant lobster claw right on top! I went back with friends and it wasn't a freak occurrence, huge chunks of lobster every time. Plus the rest of the flavor of the chowder... More

Awesome place to get some lunch. Enjoyed delicious teriyaki wings and poblano pepper poppers for apps. The lobster Mac and cheese was great as well as the BBQ pulled pork pizza. Service was good, casual and laid back dining at a fair price.

Seems like standard "pub food" at first glance but the chef is a master. Meals were all awesome and portions generous. Their motto is "Great food for everybody" or something like that...and its true!! Staff is really friendly, especially "Karl with a K"!!

Love the name and the outdoor seating. The humus bread was great. Sandwiches were good and very big. Couldn't finish them. Mac and cheese was nothing special.

Food was a little overpriced for being somewhat generic. I could've made it at home. A bit of a greasy spoon. Although the service and drinks were good.
