“Always a Good Time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

This place can get crowded, and the service can be spotty, but the food is consistantly good. Even when the place is packed, the staff is very friendly. The Comedy Zone upstairs is a great night out when there is a show.

“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The food is always good here. They use to have a sandwich that was so awesome, but not on the menu anymore. Great burgers too.

“Weekday family spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We stop here frequently with kids for dinner during the week. Great fish and chips, shepherds pie and Guinness, of course. The strawberry spinach salad with warm goat chz is one of our staples. Also love the jerk chicken with mango. Very spicy. The burgers are also really good. Some of the other items we ave not cared for...shrimp and grits comes to mind. Great patio, indoor fireplace is great in winter.

“Are you kidding?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

A friend recommended this place. Ordered a beer and as I studeid the menu and took a sip the glass was chipped and it cut my lip. Waitress returned with another glass and another beer, no apology. After waiting 15 minutes to order, then dealing with surly staff we decided to leave. Manager seemed to care less; I paid for my wife's beer, refused to pay for mine which he insisted I pay for even when I showed him my cut lip.
