We ate in the pub, because the restaurant looked stark. Large portions, cheap eats. Not terribly tasty or good at all. Okay pub food. Good service. Essentially a sports bar. Nothing that stands out.

Lucky to go in on Tuesday for cheeseburger special day for $11. Super good burger with garlic aioli and tons of crispy fries with delicious gravy. Too much to eat. Great value.

We have visited the Rod & Gun several times over the last few months. Each time the food has been very good and the service has been excellent. The menu is typical pub style food with some in-house flare that is nice and tasty. We...More
