Penny Lane Pub looks like just about any "pub" restaurant, with dark wood, cozy booths and a lively bar. I am not a fan of classic Pub food, fried everything laden with carbs. However, we have been coming here for years and are never disappointed, it is a very good restaurant with great food. The service is spot on and... More

Oh dear! The staff remains kind and friendly, but what is going on in their kitchen? Had the chef not shown up yet? I used to love their BISON BURGERS. I had two this summer to knock one's socks off. What was presented to me today tasted like chopped up old socks. I ordered a MEDIUM bison burger with nothing... More

I met my friend here for lunch and she recommended the bison burger. I had never tried bison before, but she said it's all she's ever tried here because it is so good she cannot get anything else. I ordered it and was not disappointed! Very delicious!!! The service was great as well. Our drinks never went empty and they... More

We had lunch at Penny Lane and glad that we chose this restaurant. Our group of 6 ordered different items and everyone raved about the choice. We ate on the upper level and we liked the atmosphere. Service was also very good!

Went there for dinner. Had sandwiches and a salad. Kind of pricey for what you get. No light American beers on tap so we had iced tea. Nice atmosphere. Probably won't be back though.

I like the atmosphere in the bar area. Seating was fine but I had the fish tacos and they were not that good at all. It was like eating fish sticks when you were a child but wrapped in a tortilla
