very friendly staff and fun little hidden treasure. Have plenty of beers to choose from and always fun place to be at. Just wish they would get Murphy's Irish Stout on tap :)

Awesome to know that you consider us a "fun little hidden treasure" and had a great time with our friendly staff. I wish we could get the Murphy's Irish Stout on tap for you but unfortunately it is not distributed to our area, with craft beer taking over there is a chance that we will be able to get it... More

My table ordered six pints (Guinness) and the tab was less than $15 during the afternoon happy hour. I'm not sure what happened there but I like it. The service was slow both during happy hour and also during late Friday night. A bit more staff or maybe I should say a more attentive staff was needed. The place is... More

I love the food and atmosphere! Just got out of a business meeting over lunch and couldn't have been better. The food was great, had an awesome lunch special for $5. Hard to beat. The staff always exceeds my expectations. Always acknowledges us right when we walk in the door. Typically by name even!
