A great little pub. Good food, great prices. $5 draft beer night Turkey tips are excellent, great burgers, pulled pork sliders, and boneless wings at reasonable prices! Always a warm welcome and a bowl of popcorn to start you off

Food is made mostly onsite. Onion rings were fabulous as was the cape cod Reuben. Good beers on tap both local and national pulls. Popcorn comes out for you to nibble while you wait. This is the cheers of Watertown!
