We had the Fish & Chips. Everything we saw coming out for other tables looked great! Heaping portions! Wait staff a bit slow but attentive. Parking a bit rough when they are busy.

Another place we keep going back to. Beer and wine and only served by one of the best bar tenders. Burgers and pizza and sandwiches for lighter fare. Thai shrimp and black rice! Lamb chops! Fish and chips! Mad Dog salad! Nightly specials. One of our favorite spots in a city with many good restaurants. Always great food and service.... More

Mad Dogs still a favorite! The bar tender very entertaining. If you're waiting for a table belly up to the bar. Usually one of the owners on hand at dinner. Weather permitting we like eating on the patio. Friendly and knowledgable staff. To many great dishes. Everyone comments about the fish and chips, deservedly so. This is an English pub.... More

Great selection of British and Irish beers on tap, and a great menu. Recommend the Shepherd's pie. Great prices, service, and setting.

Done correctly. Large pieces of fish with crispy outer coating, vaguely malty taste. Fries are double fried correctly. A large portion and delicious. You may need to double up on your cholesterol medication afterwards! My wife had the Red Thai Curry Shrimp pasta and declared it delicious. She said the serving was a bit much but the spicy 'bite' was... More

We ate here on a Friday evening in July and had to circle around a few minutes before we finally found a spot in front of the adjacent building. I had the burger without a bun and added Swiss cheese, and they almost cooked it medium rare-just a tad closer to medium, but it was ok! It came with a... More

Horrible service and food. Egg was overlooked and bacon undercooked until I sent back, then charred. Couldn't get order correct and overcharged us. Husband's Napa Salad had all cabbage, little pecans and not worth money he paid! Parking lot muddy too.
