The food is spectacular. Seriously awesome. I'll keep visiting. You must have the fries, all the apps are great!! Perfection takes time but it is very slow, even when they are. Worth the visit!!

I stop to your well passing through town. The menu had lots of choices and the staff was friendly and helpful. The food was very good and well worth my visit. I cannot wait to return.

I have been to this restaurant numerous times and without exception the food, service and surroundings have been excellent. Different specials are a great value. I think that you can't go wrong here.

If you can, make a reservation; the wait for a table was very long despite what appeared to be several empty tables. Apparently those were being held for large parties. The food was fine and there were several vegetarian, although not vegan, options. The service was good.

I waited a day before writing this, as I hoped the email I sent to the management would offer some response to encourage me to move past the awful experience my companions and I faced last night. I'd been here once before when it was busy, and the food and service were fine, so I suggested to friends that we... More

A colleague and I had a casual dinner at this local pub. A very enjoyable and comfortable experience with a nice selection of pub food, seafood, and local brews. The atmosphere is very English pub. I recommend this for a nice casual drinks and dinner!

I came here with about 10 other people for a birthday party dinner. The food was great and so was the service. We all had a good time, and although you could tell the place was packed, the service didn't suffer and we left even happier than we came in!

Good food and drinks. There is quite a variety of pub style food from burgers to entrees. I particularly like their lobster stew. Packed with lobster and hint of sherry. The black and blue bistro steak salad is my go to entree when hitting the pub after a tough day at the office. Add a marguerita and it is a... More

This was a great stop and the burger was very tasty. Good beer selection and the service was very friendly. Only drawback was the atmosphere. Upon walking in, your first impression comes from a bathroom. Located in a dark basement- for those over 40 you may want to consider using the flashlight on your phone to read menu!

This cozy, friendly tavern under the old post office is very welcoming and relaxed. They could offer more beers on tap but there's enough. You have to make sure to order the Mac n cheese, for my taste there's none better. Had their chili last night and you can't go wrong there either. Nice place to take a date.
