Most reliably good pub food around. Burgers are great. Often get take out. Nice outside space. Good waiters. Fish and chips not bad although the home made chips used to be better.

This is an American style restaurant with seating indoors or outdoors under a canopy. There is also a bar you can eat or drink at with plexiglass separations. Servers are attentive and food very tasty. It’s not a fancy place but a nice place to...eat with friends and family.More

My friend and myself have enjoyed a couple of fun lunches at the Good Life, which is a British Pub. They have an interesting menu, though they don't offer everything on the menu for lunch. So far, we have had the Shepherd's Stew, Chili,and the...Good Life burger. All were excellent. They have a very interesting beer list with some real rarities. We get the house Good Life Pilsner which is excellent.The place is very nice and they currently have both outdoor and indoor seating. We sit inside, and they have the tables spaced pretty far apart. The service was terrific and the servers are all very friendly and energetic. All in all very fun place!More

Met an old high school friend for lunch. Ordered black bean burger and patty melt. Both were excellent, tasty, juicy cooked as ordered(patty melt). Had pasta salad which was creamy and tasted homemade. Server was excellent, I wish all were like him. Great pub which...is on my favorite pubs to go to.More

Definitly a cool and different spot to check out. It's a british style pub with mainly IPA and craft style beers on tap. But you can get regular domestic beers if you want. Food wise place is great. Menu is printed on a newspaper and...offers a different style of dinning. My personal favorite on the menu is the prime minister which is a skirt steak and jalapeno cheddar sandwich with onion stings on top. I like to get a side of sweet potato tots with it. There are a few other very good sandwiches on the menu and also have some great apps.More

Friendly place, comfortable and nice choice of menu items. We went late on a Friday evening, about 10pm, we ate in the bar and our waiter/bartender Chris was great! Great amount of beers on tap, my sons were happy and they had good selection of...gluten free for my daughter. We had some fun appetizers also, chicken cordon blue balls and everything pretzel! If in the area we would definitely go back.More

Had to go to a wake and stopped in for a quick bite for dinner. Have a nice little outside seating area which is better in the warmer weather since inside is a pretty dark. The menu is a unique blend of fusion English/American foods...with a wide variety of appetizers and their specialty Mac & Cheese combinations. The Potstickers were good, while the Everything Pretzel really wasn’t a pretzel and more like a giant everything breadstick. I had a Bacon Cheddar Burger with fries which was fine and my wife had the Slow Cooked Short Rib which was ok, but would have better if the BBQ gravy wasn’t so over powering. The Creamy Truffle Polenta was very good. Excellent craft beer selection.More

It’s a good spot but sometimes hit or miss. Gets crowded in the bar for happy hour but overall a good place to grab a drink/apps

Four of us ate here for a friend's birthday. Christina greeted us and informed me that we couldn't be seated until our entire party was presented. Serena took our order. My husband had the pulled-pork sandwich. It was on thin soggy bread. The birthday man...had blackened chicken cheese steak. This was on a thick roll. Each sandwich would have been better had the bread been switched. The juices from the pulled-pork made the bread soggy, but it wouldn't have if it was presented on a thick roll. My friend had the Corn beef cabbage special. She said it was good. The prevention and amount for a special, was minimal. I had the Reuben special with crunchy sweet potato tater tots. The sandwich was very thin. The taste was good.More

Located just 2 blocks from my house we have one of Long Island’s best beer emporiums that also has tasty fresh food unlike other “pub” type restaurants. The Good Life is a step above those and the packed house proves it every night. Love their...house burger and I am always up for a tasty specialty beer of the season. Don’t miss this place! And it’s more than just burgers.More
