We stopped in after a show and had a drink, (good selection of beer and cider and wine) It used to be a garage, they have a fenced in area for kids - outdoor so no good for us. Heaters in the covered, closed in section. The appetizers were really good, hummus and pimento cheese. The Salmon BLT was spicy... More

My husband and i had just returned from a cruise, and our daughter and her family took us to Universal Joint. Fun, family vibe! We were four adults and two children, 7 1/2 and 5 1/2. Decent selections for kids, although our hungry almost eight year old grandson put away an adult meal! Great hamburgers, with several variations (I had... More

Atmosphere ok. Patio looking out over Oakhurst. Vegetarian options are very limited. Their homemade veggie burger just fell apart. My companion had the veg quesadilla, nothing special.

We had dinner here with friends one Sunday evening. Great little spot! Little eclectic. Food was good and reasonably priced. We sat outside on the patio which was very pet friendly! Only compliant I had was the salsa was a little bland for me. They do serve tots which were great!

We haven't eaten in the little eclectic Oakhurst village before and were pleased with our choice of a place to have lunch. The service was friendly and prompt. I had a gyro with the cucumber salad...delicious! My husband had a patty melt..also delicious and large. He was pleased that they put sautéed mushrooms on his burger along with sautéed onions...

This was my second visit to the Universal Joint. It's good place to stop to grab a beer, watch a game, and grab something to eat. I had the spicy egg rolls and a couple of Sweetwater Hop Hash's for a late night session with an old friend. Both were excellent.

We went here while visiting family over the holidays. It was in the 70s so we ate outside. I had the vegetarian burger and tots, my husband had the fish tacos, and my daughter had the chicken tacos. All our food was really good. The veg burger had an aioli sauce that was spicy, but consistent and never too hot.... More

Located in a quirky neighborhood, this pub has good, traditional pub food at mid-range pub prices and a nice selection of beverages. The patio is fantastic on a pretty day and dogs are welcome. However, service can be very slow. . .if seated on the patio you will probably wait a long time for someone to take your order, have... More
