OK, I own a brewpub so this might be angled, yet this is a great little pub. The food was pub style, but solid. My first beer, was the Octoberfest, which was a bit thin and lacked the sweet, malty body of this style. However my second was the oatmeal stout, which was as good as I've ever had. A really nice beer. The food was good and tasty; a welcome respite from the road and a good place to stop. Our server was awesome and she helped with menu selections, as well as described the beers quite well. Usually some female servers don't really stand behind dark beers or more full bodied ales. What really impressed me with this place was the manner in which a manager worked with a table that had an issue with their meal. It was a four-top, with a husband who seemed rather pissed at the world and cited everything wrong he could imagine, within earshot of those in the dining room. The son, a young teen, opted for a steak, in which I heard "rare" as the temperature. This usually means a hot, pink center, not usually favored by the younger patrons. The mom had to help him cut the meat, in which the father and mom voiced their opinion concerning the fat, and the temperature (hot pink). The dad was very loud and pretty pissy. When the manager spoke with him, the father left no room for a discussion. Nor was he looking to solve the issue, he just seemed like he wanted a fight. My managers would simply pay for his entire table and ask him to leave. Your manager was awesome and tried everything. Mainly, he did not lose his cool once he understood there was no pleasing this family. Kudos to you guys; how your staff acts, and reacts is a top-down deal. I will be back, it's along the route to my son's school.
