Pretty average food, good service and a very wide selection of beer on tap. It was very loud which meant shouting at each other thus increasing the volume and the aircon was really cold.

We were staying next door and found Timothy O'Toole's when I was browsing before our trip. We spent the day shopping and wanted to watch the race. We were able to get a table and they turned one of the tvs to the race so we could watch. Great service and we will definitely go back!!

Had lunch here. Food was good, probably a little above average, Cobb salads got rave reviews, order the starter size, it is plenty. Fish tacos were good too. Biggest disappointment was that beer could have been colder.

They sure take pride in winning hottest wings and best wings. I just wasn't impressed. The wings are fried and then flavored. We ordered extra spicy and parmesan garlic. The spicy had great fl or but lacked the heat they promised. We also ordered the Parmesan garlic fries and a Macintosh Salad with Blackened Chicken (tasted like chicken was rolled... More

I have been here a couple of times over the past couple of years. It is a great place to meet friends and have a few drinks and appetizers or dinner. Food is good reasonably priced. I got the vegetable tacos... Really good (although I would prefer a crunchy shell not my soggy corn tortilla) but the flavor was good.... More

This restaurant was on a list of local places near The Sleep Inn (the hotel where we stayed for Navy Graduation) My family dined here Friday, July 29th 2016 for dinner. Our family sat on the bar side of the restaurant at a high top. Our son had his white sailor uniform on and several patrons approached him to congratulated... More

We dined on a Thursday and the place was full of families, thoroughly enjoying themselves. Noise level was high but the food was good -- we sampled a number of appetizers, mussels (which the house took off the bill because so many shells were empty), ribs, combo plates. What was really the pleasant surprise of the night, though, was our... More

We had an excellent waitress. We had a couple of cocktails and she offered to stuff my olives with blue cheese. Then I ordered wings for takeout and she really took care to make sure my order was the way I wanted it. Great attention to detail and very pleasant young lady.

Thank RD B
