“Cool restaurant with OK food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

My daughter-in-law took us here for lunch on a Thursday afternoon while we were in town visiting my Navy pilot son. The "flyers" theme is pretty neat, and the atmosphere is good. The waitress was friendly but not over-bearingly so. Our food arrived in a timely manner, and even though it was lunch time, it was not crowded. I had a good local pilsner along with some fried pickles and the fish tacos. The food presentation was nice, but the food itself was just so-so. This would be great place to meet up for a beer and an appetizer, but it isn't the best place for a family sit down meal.

“Not returning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Nothing good here. Burnt and tasteless food. Rude service. Definitely overpriced for the quality. Not going back ever.

“Not All That”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

There was a time when I could say they had the best chowder in town, but not so now. Last experience, it was more like a bacon and potato cream soup. We asked for the Oyster Basket to share but was charged for two oyster appetizers (pan fried oysters and oyster shooters - the shooters were never served to us). The pan fried oyster appetizer was more like deep fryer leftover bits served with the ginger/soy sauce. We were given two baskets of fries which were not needed. Essentially we were charged DOUBLE what we should have been charged. I went to their website and emailed them about the issue but was ignored. If you want to be charged for food you didn't ask for and were not served, go there. However, I WILL NOT GO THERE AGAIN.

“Fun and festive atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

This is a great place to hangout. The restaurant and bar are top notch and they brew a great variety of tasty beer. Sports are on the many TV's around the restaurant but are not loud and you can always speak in a normal voice. The food is great and the menu has a large variety from standard pub fare to seafood and steaks. This is a place you don't want to miss!

“Awesome food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Their reputation for great steaks and great burgers is well deserved. The sweet potato fries are soooooooo good! It was a bit noisy on a Friday night, and the back room had some people going in and out who were somewhat obnoxious, which took away a bit from the otherwise fun ambience. But we'll try it again, hoping for a different crowd because the food and service were so good.
