My wife, our son and I went here while on vacation. We sat outside on the deck, which had a great vibe. There were a couple of musicians playing acoustic folk and blues to add to the atmosphere. The Philly cheese steak was generous and pretty good. The crab cake sandwich was OK. I ordered a shrimp and clam linguine... More

The music was so loud that we were screaming at each other. My voice was totally gone b y the time we left at... More

First off, Iove the way the waitresses all work together, they all take care of you. The service is incredibly quick, even when they are busy. The atmosphere is friendly and nice. Ive read complaints about the bouncers, but thankfully had no problems with them, yes they asked to see my license, but thats their job. One person in our... More

Solid cheesesteak sand which. Lots of different choices fr toppings, cheeses and sauces. I prefer the teriyaki sauce. Generous portions and good fries. We typically go for lunch and it can be helpful to call in order ahead of time as service tends to be slow.

We have been to this place several times. You need to be choosy of the food you order if you want something good. None of the food we ordered was ever bad. Some items don't have a lot of flavor. The Cheesesteak Flatbread we ordered this visit was exceptionally good and so was the Rueben Sandwich. My friends and family... More

Had probably the worst roast beef sandwich ever. The question is "Where's the beef?" All bread, lettuce and tomato served with a bag of potato chips you can buy for 20 cents at Sam's club. Friend had a burger that looked ok. Very very disappointed.

Convenient to I-87 and US-9, this pub offers indoor, outdoor under cover, and fully outdoor seating, and is on the same driveway as the Latham Inn (see my objective review on that). They offer a build your own Philly Cheesesteak, and my associate, native of PA said they did a very good job. My burger with cajun spice and crispy... More
