Nice casual restaurant with some outdoor seating . Excellent bar seating for watching the game or just socializing. Very nice food menu sandwiches, appetizers, salads and entrees.. Seating can be in the room around the bar or separate comfortable rooms with a fireplace. Very convenient off Rte 22 and .good service.

This is 4th or 5th time we have eaten here and have yet to have s less that great meal. Sandwiches and salads are very good to great as are burgers. The slides are a particular treat. Service is good and prices moderate. Very enjoyable on all the occasions we have visited.

Great place to enjoy live sports action from all angles. The Friendly staff adapts to your agenda. The most popular menu selections (Willies Cheese Burger, Fish and chips) arrived quickly. Average sports bar food but the sides of coleslaw and round cut sweet potato fries were excellent .

Enjoyed while in town w friends. Nice place to watch games and get a few apps. Wings better than average. The burgers, sliders, Reuben and sandwiches were very good. Nice escape for a few but not the greatest. It's a pub so liked better than other places around.

The food choices were excellent. They serve all different kinds of fries and the turkey club was large enough for lunch and dinner. The service was a bit on the slow side so let them know if you are in a hurry.

Someplace open late in Branchburg. You really only have three choices - here or Royal or Thirsty's - both where you don't want to go if you're not a regular (especially Royal). Middle of the road experience. Middle of the road service. Middle of the road food. Middle of the road live music. Loud, young crowd (early 20s) which is... More

I really want to like this place but something always seems to disappoint me. During my most recent trip our server seemed more interested in going home than taking care of us. When our dinners were complete she came over with the check in hand and asked if we needed anything else. She then proceeded to drop the check on... More

Three girfriends order the Blackened Red Snapper special and all suffer a not-so-mild case of food poisoning. We did tell the waiter that the fish was highly over-seasoned, almost too hot to eat - guess that was done to hide the bad taste!

The service is not so good. Neither is the food. The place has very tight seating and it is loud when crowded.

Great place to have a burger or sandwich. The salads are also a huge portion. The place is a little dark so we always ask to sit near window. Very good service too.
