Atmosphere here is fine, but the food was fair at best. Flat Bread was over priced $10.00, and really bad. Then ordered a pizza , pepperoni and mushrooms. Honestly tasted like a frozen pizza. Its a shame to spend good money on food like this....We ordered two bud light drafts 24 oz, when the bill came they charged $7.50 for each. Never will be back and will never recommend. Disappointed.More

Sat at the bar, ordered a drink during happy hour. Intended to order dinner, etc.... after 1 hour was not engaged in anyway. Would you like to order something? How are things? Would you like another drink..... very very odd. So... don't know if the...food is any good. Shame, seems like a nice place, too bad about the staff.More

Oh, my, I was warned that the burgers were big! 1/2 pound, plus the garnishes. My burger, the Californian, was a half pound of burger plus guacamole, onions, etc AND the best crispy fries I have had in a long time. My friend had a...thin crust pizza, which looked enticingly good. Our server was quick, efficient, and very nice. The area we sat in was adjacent to their outside deck, the "wall" next to us was actually built like a garage door which is rolled into the ceiling area in the summer. The only drawback was the location of the handicapped parking - off to the side, toward the rear.More

My wife and I split a beet salad and a Thai Pie. Both were very good. I also had a smoked old fashioned. The bourbon was served in a bottle full of smoke; You had to shake it & pour it over ice, orange &...cherry in a separate glass. The Smokey bourbon flavor was awesome. Service was OK but not overly friendly.More

After stopping at another restaurant last min and being told there’s an hour wait we decided on this Pub last minute. Glad we did!! Great atmosphere and food and no wait for a Friday evening! Would definitely visit again when in town!!!

Poor service. Poor food. Frozen appetizer. No one cared. Won’t return. Too many other options nearby.

The hostess were teenage girls who were too busy having private conversations that they didn't acknowledge our group for a good minute or two. They then tell us there is a wait, which is completely understandable. When we ask if we can wait at the...bar the one hostess rudely says "If you can find space". Where is the friendly customer service? We walk around the bar and notice at least 10 empty but unclean tables. As far as first impressions go, there is lots of work for these folks. Maybe better staffing so the table turnaround is quicker?More

Visited our son while he lived in Columbus, wanted to take him somewhere nice. Never been here, it looks nice. We were right, it is nice. Very cool decor, nice atmosphere. Food was actually good, too, and priced as expected. The staff? Well, there's the...rub. Extremely slow service and they just didn't seem to care. Maybe they do, but that's not the vibe we were receiving. Difficult to get refills even though there appeared to be a staff union meeting at the hostess station at all times. Give me a wait staff that actually attends to my family needs and this place gets a five.More

The restaurant is pretty with a nice atmosphere. Lunchtime service was a bit slow, but server was nice. We liked the clam chowder and quesadilla. Could live without the cowboy nachos and fish tacos. Bit overpriced for a casual lunch.
