We stopped for drinks and ended up having dinner while we were there. The pizza looked amazing but I ended up getting the fish which was excellent. Bar food at its best - with some healthy options available as well. Service was fast and friendly. We'll be back!

Very good English-style pub, similar to the Oar House in Los Angeles. Wine, beverages, ales, and food menu all very good.

We stopped in for lunch and had the Rueben Sandwich. It was excellent and I would also recommend the Bloody Mary. The menu was mostly your typical bar food.

Dropped in on a Tuesday afternoon after visiting the NOAA Great Lakes Maritime Museum. My son and I were greeted cheerfully, and we had a nice lunch washed down with some excellent Michigan microbrews. Our server, Jess, was attentive and fun. We enjoyed the decor,the location in downtown Alpena, the food and the service. Will try it again next time... More

I have been there 4 times. Nice setting but the bartenders just stare at you and ignore your presence. each time I have ended up leaving due to the lack of service.

CongaPaul, Owner at The Black Sheep Pub, responded to this review

Unexpectedly too busy for bartender to serve seated customers, too loud for her to call you up to the bar. So sorry, we try to plan for this, but can't always get it right. More

This is a great, and unique, location in Alpena, Mi. The atmosphere, the drinks, and the food all have a "British" flavor. The owners, Kris and Paul, manage to get a variety of live music and musicians in the pub, Be sure to check them out and see what is on the menu and the music scene
