“Good food, reasonable price, friendly staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Burgers are ground in house, allowing you to order to the temp. you really like, as apposed to the state required "burned".

“Great location, good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Standard pub fare - not a bad thing! Very close to campus. Food is very good (not great; the reuben sandwich I had was ok) but place has a nice atmosphere.

“Interesting Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great selection of food, small and very busy during the week at lunch - but worth the wait! However, the Carolina pulled pork had a very strong vinegar taste (wiater warned us). The cornbread on the other hand is fabulous!

“Great food, friendly staff, and a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The food was great and the staff were so friendly. We both had burgers and they were great but as always a friendly staff means a lot!
