We eat here about 2-3 times a year. We are seeing some changes here. The menu continues to shrink. When they opened, the menu was like a book. Now it is a one fold. Many of the things that I have enjoyed in the past are no longer on the menu. It seems like the items being taken off the... More

This is a great place to hang out. It is the only place in LC with decent single malt scotch (that I could find). The artichoke dip and the bread pudding are to die for. Actually, that is all I eat there. I hear the fish and chips are good ;-)

My sister told me they served bar food but it was certainly not what I expected. No..not the same old fried food menu. We started with an avocado crab dip served with fried pita pieces. I had pecan crusted redfish with sweet potato fries. Husband had shepherds pie with squash/zucchini and glazed green beans. We both over ate. Will be... More

I had the shepherd's pie which was quite good. Hard to find around here. The beer is cold and the food is good. What more can I say?

I had lunch with two friends yesterday. They had the fish and chips,I had the Rueben. They said the fish and chips were delicious and amy reuben was great. The portions were so generous I had to take half of my sandwich home. They also have many excellent beers on tap. Overall a gastronomic delight.

I have to say my favorite item to get is the pecan dusted shrimp with Tasso creamed sauce! The stuffed shrimp are broiled or grilled either way not bad.

We went for happy hour and stayed for dinner. Their happy hour is half-priced drinks and some appetizers. We had fried pickles and jalepenos, which were very good if you like spicy. They have a large selection of beer on tap. Zack was our waiter and suggested the seafood cakes for dinner, which are large enough to share, and they... More

They have really good food, their burgers are huge, and they put everything on them you can think of. I really enjoyed everything I ordered, and I ate here several times. I liked their crab dip appetizer, it was really good. I would eat here again in a heartbeat.

This family run establishment has a very good selection of scottish malts, Irish whiskeys, etc, etc.. They also have a VERY good home soaked vodka behind the counter and the food is also very good. If something is going on at the convention center, we always stop by for a drink.
