We made 5 o'clock reservations for a Sat night for dinner before going to the theatre. We were seated promptly and got our meal. All our meals seemed second rate as compared to before. THEN before we even finished our meal along came an another waitress (older with blond spikey hair) and plunked down reserve signs for next serving. This... More

I really enjoy this pub. The wings are great and the service staff are friendly and do their job well. I enjoy it even more when there is live music playing. Its close to home which makes it even better,.

My husband and I frequently visit this hidden gem. The food is outstanding, and can be modified on request. Home made food, that tastes better than mom can make. The Chicken Stuffed Yorkie, with the grilled seasonal veggies is a definite comfort food that will leave you full and satisfied. Staff are always friendly, and remember you even after one... More
