“Great find for those who don't want a tourist place to eat...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is that proverbial place in travelling that you find where the locals eat. Great bar, super service, and down home food at good prices!

“Pub is upscale and welcoming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

Sitting alone at the bar is unusual for me, but I felt welcome and at ease. I enjoyed a cup of clam chowder (complete with bacon) and "basket" of fries that came with bbq sauce and ranch dressing. The glass of wine pour was generous. If you have children, I did see a family enjoying dinner. Though, there were a few guys at the bar who shared some colorful language. All in all, this is a great place. I'll be back!

“Great alternative to the fine dining.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This was a great relaxing pub atmosphere with an affordable menu. They are opened later than most of the restaurants for those looking for a later night of fun.

“Great little Pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had an excellent lunch from a very good menu. Very good selection of beers & wines. Service was excellent and the place was very clean. Only problem was that there was only one restroom which had to be shared which really did not please my wife or daughter in law.

“Bloody Marys”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is a little place off the beaten track of Carmel. Very clean, fun place to kick back...Have some drinks, meet friends and watch sports. The bloody mary's are the very best...and have bacon in it. Was very nice to Erin...She rocks!
