Love me my Pod. This place is a staple for me while I'm in the Mac. Awesome staff, awesome food, and awesome times. A good place to relax after work or to go out for a good time. Can get quite busy.

Glad you tried the pub food but have you... More

We stop in occasionally to watch a sports event and have some nachos. It is primarily standard pub grub and lots of TVs for games. Always someone in the back playing pool, people sitting around the big horseshoe bar. We like to take a booth for a little quieter time. nachos and other grub is good, used to be better,... More

Had a pretty good chicken burger and really enjoyed how close it was to the hote we stayed at. Very casual, low keyed atmosphere which was perfect.
