The food and service have gone way down. The once excellent coned beef is now very fatty and tough, and the vegetables were uneatable.

During my visits, I've had wedge salads, fries and several types/kinds of burgers. I have always enjoyed my visits. Atmosphere and service are good. They have a full bar for those who wish to partake. They have an outstanding selection of draft brews, both micro and national brands. If you like IPA's, I think you would enjoy the La Cumbre...

This is a casual, informal pub with great, pleasant service and delicious food! The nachos are definitely some of the very best anywhere, with real cheese and lots of goodies--be hungry or split one. Onion rings are also delicious; I've never had anything bad here. Also recommend the fish and chips. Really good food!

This is by far the best burger I have had in a very long time. The meat is grilled and the buns are also! It's a brioche bun. It is so fresh and tasty. My husband says the McGoldrich is very good, that is if you like green chile! The price is very reasonable!

They make their own potato chips and offer one menu item termed "Irish Nachos which were quite good - loaded with seasoned meat, queso and jalapenos.

We visit this place from time to time and we have always liked the food and the beer. They serve a great Hefeweizen and the fish and chips are good too. You'll get a good meal for a decent price. Outside seating too!

Visited Wednesday evening, few diners. Typical food selections (Cobb salad-wilted lettuce searching for meat morsels), but good beer varieties. Service was very good.

The food was great! I sat at the bar, service wasn't that great due to the march madness game on tv! But it was not busy, peaceful and the important thing was the food! I had the roast beef sandwich with au jus!! Makes my mouth water just thinking about it!! Definitely a place I would go back to and... More
