Typical pubby atmosphere, lots of wood, big bar, complete with the distant aroma of smoke still lingering well after the ban. The staff was beyond nice and made you feel like you have been coming for years. They were obviously gearing up for St. Patty's day as the place was more green than brown.
The menu was small, but had a nice variety and they had some specials like Shepherd's Pie. I opted for the cheesesteak which is a favorite comfort food of mine and my husband chose the beef on weck. Both sandwiches came with homemade fries, a pickle and coleslaw. The latter was excellent, the right blend of every ingredient and a perfect side dish.
The cheesesteak with provolone looked unbelievable. Photo included. Packed with minced meat that was perfectly coated with provolone cheese. Not sure how they accomplished this, unless they made the provolone whiz like. Pretty disappointed with the Amaroso roll though as it seemed it had met its expiration date and decided to stay longer. Definitely did not help the sandwich, which was a bummer. Overall, though, enjoyable.
Beef on weck got a 6.5 out of 10. Flavors were there, but as photo shows the bun was kind of overwhelming the meat, which puts things a bit off balance. Nevertheless, perfectly acceptable and tasty. The fries were definitely flavorful and you could immediately tell they were homemade. Just wish they were crispier.
All in all though, I would have no problems going back as there was nothing I didn't like about the place.
