My friends were out for a 40th Birthday party. We had the back room reserved and it has its own entrance. Plenty of beers to choose from. The food is also quite good.

Met a few friends here for a quick bite. It’s a lovely bar, beer was great, service was as good, and the food was ok. We’ll be back for sure.

We had beers and dinner here. The pulled pork sandwich with a side of fries was very good. They have a decent selection of beers on tap. It was reasonably priced with very good service. I would recommend it if you are in the neighborhood.

I attended a rehearsal dinner for a wedding recently. The party room was very nice. The food was great. We got sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, Greek salad and veggie trays. Everything went smoothly.

A great local experience. Neat neighborhood location, outdoor patio area and really friendly staff. This is an easy place to enjoy. I had fish tacos and Magners. Food was fresh and more than enough. Magners was ice cold and the staff was warm and friendly....More
