I come to this area every month and this is a popular place with locals. The beer selection is decent and the food is tasty making this an easy pick for a beer after work or dinner. Go for it.

pretty standard stuff here, good selection of craft beer, burgers, salads and sandwiches. Many many TVs making it a good choice for football season. They also have trivia night and drink specials. The food is OK just not outstanding.

After a scorching day of roller coasters we traipsed on over to this pub in search of a meal and an adult beverage. Boy, did we hit the jackpot!

Wanted to try something new from the every day chain restaurants and it was worth the stop. We had a couple appetizers and watched the baseball game on one of the many tvs. The customer service was wonderful.

Ate here on a Friday night. Food was very good. Fish and chips (french fries), wings, tater tots, tacos all tasty and well prepared. Televisions tuned in to sports kept teens happy. Little pricey; my fish and chips cost $14. Excellent service.
