This was my first time to this pub. When we entered, the classic rock made me feel at home and then the decor invited me to stay. We ordered the onion rings appetizer and they were huge. Ate half and had to stop to save room for the entre. I ordered endless clam chowder and spinach salad which had just... More

The food just wasn't very good the last few times we went there with friends. LOVE the patio and having drinks -- but that's about all. Very BUMMED that it went downhill. : (

Quaint pub atmosphere with a terrific craft beer selection. Everyone in our group enjoyed the food and the wait staff was very attentive. Will definitely try them again.

Great if you are interested in 'Pub food'. Always popular for all ages of diners..because it IS great food, there's usually a wait. But that is expected.

I read the reviews and had a few reservations about going here but decided to try it. Two fish and chips dinners (one w/fries the other w/veggie kabob that was excellent) and a spinach salad w/scallops later and we are sold. Great food, great service and a really nice reasonably priced beer selection. Next time we travel through Marysville, we're... More

A good addition to Marysville. The fish there is the best around! Nice atmosphere and good service too! Worth the visit.

Great food, great prices. Sit outdoors if you can. The wait staff was pleasant and the restaurant was easy too find.
