“Local Atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

On our way to dinner we stepped into this bar for a drink, we ended up ordering the onion rings, they were good, but really hot in temperature; which is a drawback of having cooking oil at a good temperature to properly fry foods! We have very lively conversations with a few locals, the place was very busy, but we still have great service. We would go back for the onion rings and people watching!

“You feel welcome, good food, good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Good stop after being ignored at the Mucky Duck that apparently doesn't care about customers, friendly but average, still a good experience.

Wonderful pieces with a tasteful batter. Light and crispy with no greasy feeling. I go here for Fish and Chips.

“Great pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013 via mobile

Being typical Brits abroad we popped in here whilst exploring Monterey and liked it a lot. We didn't eat here but they had a good selection of local beers and the staff and locals were friendly and welcoming. Worth a stop off if you want to have a few drinks on your travels

“Best Calamari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Cute pub, excellent location downtown. They had amazing fresh calamari - and we had fun watching the hockey playoff on their huge screen. Will dine here again.
