We live within walking distance, so that's why we went. It was raining and convenient for us. For drivers, there is plenty of free parking. It was early on a Saturday night, and they were not busy. We were seated promptly and our waitress appeared immediately. First disappointment - we each ordered a glass of their house chardonnay ($6). She returned to tell us they were out of house chardonnay, but she could substitute another for $8. Really? Out of house chardonnay at a bar-restaurant? Maybe it's just me, but that was their fault, not ours. It seems they should have offered us the substitute at the house-price.
We each ordered the Steak & Ale - a decent value at $16. A modest cut of meat served with vegetables and fries/mashed potatoes. AND - a nice pint of anything they had on draft! THAT was a good value, as the regular price for drafts is $5-$6.
The restaurant was clean and there was a nice mix of families, singles and couples. Not a romantic spot, for sure. In fact, there is an abundance of TV's everywhere, including each both with a small private flat-screen. To me, that is annoying to a good conversation and a distraction in general. But again, maybe it's just me!
There is an outdoor patio dining area, but the view is of a grocery store parking lot. Again, not romantic but if you've been stuck inside all day, it might work.
We will go again and hope they are not out of house chardonnay!
