Good pub food and Bloodys. Restaurant was very busy and loud at the time I went, which was a late lunch.

Burgers are good, service is good, bloody Marys are overrated. Sure, you can get a burger or a chicken in your bloody, and that's fun, but the actual drink is boring. The presentation is the only impressive part.

Stopped in for lunch and to try one of the bloody mary's because of the pictures we saw on TA. They are just like the pictures and the best bloody mary I've had. We also had some of the wings and onion rings and everything was great. The place is an bar enviroment and service is friendly and attentive. Prices... More

Heard of the Bloody Mary's and had to try one for myself. In a word:yum! I ordered the Crown Bloody Mary and it came with all kinds of fixins: shrimp, sausage, onion, mushroom, asparagus, slider...and still more. The side car was IN the glass, too! Great. Spicy (but not too spicy). Reasonably priced. A great stop. Friendly servers. Worth the... More

You come for the burgers, you come back for the bloody marys. This neat place used to be a Schlitz bar (a bar that only served Schlitz) before being turned into Sobelmans. Although not the best burgers in the city, they might just have the best bloody mary. This is a great spot for a casual, relaxing meal, away from... More

I arrived at Sobelman's right when they opened on a Sunday, which was perfect, since the place quickly filled up and there was a line all the way out the door. We were able to get a spot at the bar, and the older gentleman bartender was fun, witty and sarcastic. Quite entertaining in itself to talk to him, and... More

Locals keep recommending this place. I don’t understand why though since the burgers are nothing special. We had “the bomb” and the “the loser.” Both were nothing to write home about. The fries and onion rings needed some salt. The coke is $2 and comes in a can. The Bloody Mary is a meal itself considering all the toppings but... More

Burgers are less than great. No flavor. Slow sloppy service EVERY time we go. Bloody Mary's are a novelty at best, taste wise, if you enjoy steak sauce, you'll love the bloody Mary's. Looking for a good burger, go to Oscar's on Pierce!! I'm a local, take my word for it.

Started our Saturday evening at this Small cozy place. Best burger and awesome Bloody Mary. A bit loud but that is part of the charm there.
