I've been here twice, once for lunch, once for dinner. Both good experiences... good service, good food, good draft beer.

Chips Pub is the local watering hole favorite. Ample parking in the rear. I think sitting at the bar the best, great drinks and food. The waitresses in other areas do not seem happy. Jonah the bartender today was great. I like the hamburgers, can have them rare if you want, grind their own so safe. The clam chowder bread... More

Chips has been around since I was a teen - the decor is cool and friendly ... Burgers are great as is the bar room . This isn't gormet so don't expect five star meal. It's a great family restaurant and you'll be sure to run into someone you know

I had the taco salad, it was so good and very filling. They give you popcorn to munch while you wait for your food, it's buttery and just the right amount of salt! The menu has a wide variety to offer, the staff is friendly and the food came out quick.

Great place to go for dinner. Large portions at reasonable prices. Service is a little slow, but they give you popcorn for free to keep you busy.

Friendly place for friends and family. The bar area is a fun place to get together with friends with a large bar and tables. Dining area is a comfortable place to bring the whole family with plenty of items to appeal to children and adults. Generous servings featuring steaks, burgers, ribs, pasta specials, and seafood. Large appetizer menu. One negative,... More

If you are on a budget and want a lot of food for your money then Chips' Pub III is the place to go. The food is awesome with a pleasant atmosphere and great drinks. This is definitely a restaurant that I would recommend if you are on a tight budget. We have all been there.

We've visited the US many times and love this kind of bar - Chips Pub III is a great example. Having had a week in the Hudson Valley, we hit the coast for a few days and were staying at the Madison Beach Hotel. Bored of the slightly stuffy atmosphere, we hit Chips Pub. And got exactly what we wanted.... More

It's pretty standard in bar settings to buy a drink at the bar then sit down at a table. I did that at this "pub", but then the waitress rudely yelled at me for not buying the drink from her. You can't get angry at your customers for acting the way people normally act in a bar. Also, this place... More
