“Gone downhill.... waaaaay downhill.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

The longwood used to be a place for reasonably priced, good food and drinks for a not-too-expensive night out. That sure has changed. Their prices have gone up big time and the food is average, nothing fabulous. $16.50 for a normal dinner size plate of nachos is outrageous I definitely will consider going elsewhere before I think of going to the longwood again. The service is usually ok, but our most recent trip was pretty poor - maybe the waitress was having a bad night but the pub wasn't busy when we got there which is surprising for a saturday night. I do love the decor, about the only think I can say is awesome about the place.

“Great food, great beers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2010

Found this in a shopping plaza and was blown away. Their beers were amazing, and the food was even better. We had one of their burger options and the salmon --- both were unbeatable.

“Full marks for food quality and...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2010 via mobile

Full marks for food quality and atmosphere. However... Service was ridiculos. Met here with a few friends from out of town and wanted to treat them to a good meal and a few drinks so I decided to being then to the Brewpub, sadly I wish I never had. The good food was trumped by the POOR service we received all night. Not sure why. Pub wasn't busy, just very lousy service
