Loved this great pub food restaurant next to Cornell. Tater tots melt in your mouth. Rib eye steak and “Silence of the Lamb” burger were fabulous! Will definitely be back!

This place is pretty typical of a college town pub. The food was good. The macaroni and cheese was the best I’ve ever had. I have to give this place a 1 for cleanliness. It was pretty bad.

The new menu (at least a year old now) is very simple Americn with a few upgrades. So it seems like it should be able o stay in business. The history there is great, as is the atmosphere.

Same inside as it has always been, but the new ownership (Collegetown Bagels next door) has tried to make the menu less pub fare which is a mistake in my opinion, or at the very least they should still offer the full burger menu, wings,...More
