Went there with family for lunch. Sat down and ordered food and drinks. When our waiter, Adam, brought our water, ALL 3 glasses were dirty with "lip prints" on them. First, I could not believe it and thought it was maybe in the glass. Tried to wipe it with my napkin, which left a sharp, clean mark on the rim... More

Stopped during a busy time, but they got us a table for five immediately! Great unique menu including some nice small plate options. They also have some great home brews! No complaints on the items I ordered like yellow fin tuna and bratwurst slider, but I didn't care much for the garlic fries, and I love garlic, who knows, maybe... More

Seven years ago I promised myself I would not return to this restaurant. However, I received a gift certificate and took my daughter to lunch. What a change in service! Nathan, our server, from arriving to departing, was the most pleasant and even charming person. He paid attention without hovering. He made suggestions that were right on the money. I... More

I love going here, been here about 5 times, whenever we are in town. It is a tad costly, but you are also paying for ambience, the pub, and location.

I'm glad to see more and more of them around. I can't tell you I've actually had a meal there other then apps and those stupidly addictive truffle fries. must have. the beers are great and so far, all the locations have a great staff. defintely worth a stop if you can't decide what to do.

I am no longer going to eat or drink at this restaurant. Second game day I try to go eat and drink prior to the ASU game and they are closed for a visiting team. I used to frequent here on other occasions, but no more.

We were hot and hungry just off the plane from Boston. Looking for fast and good with good libations. Found it all. Downtown Tempe has so many restaurants to choose from definitely put this on your list.

The location of the restaurant is great. You can view the town if you take a seat in the balkony. There are also vegan options and it is not an expensive restaurant although the architecture and the location is so good. The staff is friendly and will help you anytime you need help.

Late dinner around 8:30 on Friday night. Service poor food good. Waiter never checked on us, he was too busy. Management issues. Great location. Should have been better. We will try again.

Thank CC5
