We visited this restaurant for the first time this trip to Pembroke. The eating area is nice. No smoking (most appreciative), even the patio. Patio sits on the "main drag" so if you don't mind that. They have a large back parking lot, which could lend itself great to a large back patio away from the main street traffic. Waitress... More

Everything is locally sourced and freshly made, nothing frozen or out of a box. The cook is a Red Seal chef who actually CARES about what he serves to his patrons. The prices are unmatched! Try the beef brisket sandwich platter for about thirteen bucks!! My mission is to try every meal on the menu! The patio has been revamped... More

I like to stop in every once and a while with the gang for dinner, usually I go for the lasaugna and the great mix of beers. It has a great atmosphere and I really like the staff.

really well run, small, great pub with an interesting selection of craft beer, staff are friendly and attentive, owner runs the bar. All the burgers are handmade, wings are great, fresh cut fries. The best bar food I've had anywhere.

A cute little restaurant. We went here for dinner and we were the only ones in there. Our waitress was friendly and recommended some tap beers based on our beer preferences. We both enjoyed ours. I'd recommend farmers daughter. We ordered some sort of jalapeño popper cheese thing which were pretty tasty but nothing special. We both ordered burgers ...... More

Great place that no one knows about. Best part is the amount of craft beers and the staff knows them pretty well. Food is average. Staff were good and beer was awesome. Great place for drinks after work or after a ball game.

I hung out at the bar talking to the owner and enjoyed 3 locally brewed ales while chomping on a pizza made with locally sourced meat! This is an awesome place for great food and great beer and you know the owner and staff care about what they are doing!

We went here the other night and really enjoyed ourselves. I had Cajun jerk wings, which were very hot but super tasty. The other couples had pizza, which they also enjoyed. Fantastic selection of craft beer on tap. Great supporters of local beer. Interior is dated but service and good were great
