I really liked this local pub. The decor was great and the bartender and patrons were friendly. We didn't eat because we had already been out for dinner but the locals say its great!

gene runs a great establishment with great food and something for everyone. Its in an old bank and one can even dine in the vault. there is usually music on the weekends and during the winter it might be the only restaurant open since the others tend to close during the off season. I like the food a lot there.

My family and I were looking for a nice spot for our family of 5. My children are ages 9, 6 and 2, so I wanted a kid friendly place. So when I entered the doors of the pub, I saw a cool bar so I was not completely sure it was a kid-friendly restaurant. I wanted to know before... More

The Pub is in an old bank, which was a neat experience; however, the food was sub-par as was the service. The prices are also not what I would expect from a Pub, with the average dinner around $17 bucks or so. With limited options for dinner we got appetizers and split them - neither were great - bourbon glazed... More

We sat at the bar and had a great time. The drinks were great, but I really enjoyed the atmosphere. This was an old bank converted to a tavern. The food is supposedly excellent, but this was just a bar stop for us, on our way to dinner. Next time we visit Cape Charles, we will have a meal here.

It used to be an old bank and the old vault door gives that away to some incredible charm! They have a great selection of beer that avoids the large distributors and focuses on the micro brew - kudos to them for that! The bartenders were attentive and friendly but we didn't get a chance to try their food sadly.....will... More

Fish tacos were delicious and they had a few unusual beers on draft. The food was great, service was great, and the atmosphere (seating is in an old bank vault in part of the restaurant) is unique and has lots of character. Definitely a good lunch spot to check out!

This is place is my respite on my vacations to Cape Charles. Being accustomed to big city bars and a large selection of Irish pubs, its great that the only real bar in town does it right. They have a large selection of beer, cocktails and the game on the TV. There is just so much sun and beach I... More

After being disappointed by the other options, we came here. We had to wait for a table but the host was charming and helpful. They had a kids menu, great food and a good beer selection. Our server was helpful and attentive. They let you order off the lunch menu for dinner, which is helpful if you don't want a... More
