a local spot that has been around for many years, an active bar scene but the dining room is separate and serves a varied menu, most of which I have sampled at one time or another and all of it better than expected. They probably have the "best" Cobb Salad in Massachusetts for example.The service is good and the atmosphere... More

The service at the bar was okay but our waitress on the other hand was absolutely terrible! Long waits for her to come to the table, took forever with the check,... More

Went here for lunch on a weekend. The food was greasy and average to below average for pub food. The atmosphere is nothing special and the service was mediocre. There are much better places in the area.

The food here is nothing special. You go there for convience after having a couple of drinks in the bar. The price is fairly inexpensive, so it is OK for families with children or those on a budget
