Had the oven roasted turkey sandwich with broccoli rabe and provolone on a fresh hoagie roll. OMG this sandwich was delicious, and they were so generous with the ingredients, often you don't even taste the cheese because they give you one slice, not here. Great sandwich and great crispy fries. The manager Chris also came by our table on two... More

Upon my server's recommendation I tried the lunch special of garlic shrimp tacos and they were much better than I was expecting. Lots of shrimp and lots of great garlic flavor. They have carton brewing boat beer on tap which is always a big plus in my book. Quiet for lunch on a monday. Don't let the exterior scare you... More

Excellent fish n' chips, lobster mac & cheese to die for! Good assortment of beers on tap, including local varieties, and room to shoot pool as well.

Place was dead. Always stick you in the back where no one is. Had the cheesesteak panini wrap which was really a panini. Chicken finger good. Mac and cheese so good but so rich. Service was ok. Craft Beer selections could be better.

I've been to the Firkin a few times over the last couple months. Pretty good beer list, lots to choose from. The food is okay, would not recommend the fish tacos but the quesadillas are good.

Please call John Taffer from Bar Rescue to fix this dump. Never again. I had a hard time finding a bar stool that wasn't ripped. Food is just ok and the bartenders are rude and inefficient. Didn't know how to make a proper Bloody Mary.

Food was better than I expected given the Tavern atmosphere. Lots of draft beer options. Saw a burger go by that looked amazing; I had a shrimp special that was quite good. Beat my expectations given the name.

I was a bit apprehensive pulling up but glad I trusted the reviews I had read. Good 'pub' food, good draft beer selection and definitely a great atmosphere to relax and have a drink in. The Bartender was one of the best I've seen in a long time. He was friendly, attentive and when it seemed like they got slammed... More

Love this place for lunch. Wait staff is so incredibly attentive and friendly. Food is very good. Just watch at night. Seriously......put some more bartenders on. ridiculous. And you need a babysitter if you want to sit with some friends even in the back room. Bar area ok but back room? Oh well, I will go for lunch but my... More
