We had french onion soup & potato soup - both were excellent. Had shepards pie & french dip sandwich for the main meal. Shepards pie was really good (except for too many onions!), but the french dip was kind of bland. Large beer selection, modest desert selection - not that we had any room left. Place was packed, many waiting.... More

Walked up from the Hampton Inn. Nice spacious environment and the booths were very comfy(even for a chubby fella). Lots of beer choices, sports on view with TVs everywhere. The food was really fast! And it was fresh(not gonna lie though it could've been better). Fish and chips were really fresh but the type of fish fell apart. It's a... More

We came here for our son's graduation from military boot camp. Atmosphere, server, & food was great! The portions are big so be careful when you order. We loved it!

What a fun attitude here, in the dining room and the bar. Great burgers! Gluten-free buns and gluten-free coleslaw. PRETZEL buns for the glutinous eater! Some other entrees here have been ho-hum.

We stopped in for a quick appetizer and beer and we were not disappointed. Our server was very attentive and the food was very good. Place was very clean. I will definitely go back next time I am in the area.

The bar had a crazy selection of different beers and the waitress was super helpful. The adult grilled cheese wasn't all that great but the truffle fries...WOW! I've had them from a variety of places in the US and these were hands down the best. Great place for a decent meal and solid atmosphere.

The pub is conveniently located next to the Hampton Inn. You'll get a nice discount when you show your Hampton Inn room key. The food selection is quite good and plentiful. The 'fish and chips' were excellent, and I recommend them. Unfortunately the mixed drinks were not that great. Apparently whoever is in charge of preparing them has never heard... More

We went for dinner here on a Sunday evening. The place was quite busy for a Sunday evening. We sat near the bar area, so it was kinda loud. It was okay with us as we were away from the kids area, and had fun watch a few drunk people. We both like Guinness, esp the one in tap. The... More

Timmy's has a lengthy list of beers and friendly wait staff. Good pub food. Sundays offer a Bloody Mary bar and the numerous TVs serve up sports of all varieties every day of the week. We are locals, so we come about once a month. Food is served in the restaurant area or in the bar, which has booths, high... More

The place is attractively remodeled. The staff is eager to serve their customers. I like the large selection of craft beers. I also look forward to Beer Dinners that they've had in the past.
