We went because it is close to our club facility down the block. The specialty is beer; this attracted my wife who had two Sam Adams Chocolate Bocks. Because my medications do not allow alcohol, I can't really comment on this. The food here is...More

This is an irish bar with actually quite a big selection of food that is quite tasty. Additionally the beer selection is quite large as well. I wouldn't recommend going on a big game night as it turns into a raving sports bar - unless...More

Beer list = impressive, lots of local micro and nanobrews and specialty items Food = mediocre, uninspired, overpriced Service = unattentive, cold, uninviting. Best for sitting at the bar trying great beers.

The Saloon makes a good first impression: lots of screens for watching spots, amazing draught beer selection, large, creative menu. We came to see a World Cup game and were delighted to see that they had a special menu commemorating all of the competing nations....More

Our server wasn't sure if they had boneless buffalo tenders, the fish in the tacos was burned, the burger too fatty, salad pretty plain and the wine watered down. When we wanted to pay our bill and get out of there our server was nowhere...More

I've been to Magoun's a handful of times. The environment is relaxing and it's a great place to watch the game. It has an impressive draft beer selection and an equally impressive menu. The only downfall is the service. It seems as if they ignore...More
