Brian the bartender is a pretty cool dude as well, so says my daughter. Josh says the buffalo is actually chicken!!! Who'd a thunk it.

Family road trip and decided to go to Newark for lunch. After researching places, we found this place. Tried pretzel bites for an appetizer. Yum and cheese sauce was spicy. Cheese ale soup was good. Steak sandwich was good and moist. Cheeseburger was good. Daughter liked the mac and cheese.

There were six of us eating and we all had different menu items and no one was disappointed. The salad is marvelous and flat bread delicious

we love that they take reservations but also don't mind sitting at the bar to wait. Excellent selection of appetizers and entrees. We go once or twice a month and always have great service in the bar and dining room.

The food and service were excellent, the restaurant was clean and if this were my neighbourhood it would be my Go-To place. Sadly I was a tourist on this occasion but the locals were all having a great time watching an OSU game and enjoying themselves and the beer and munchies.

Great menu. Wife loves the tuna Caesar salad. Soups are great . Wraps are delicious. Fish dinners are tasty with great slaw . Craft beer selection is always refreshed. Samples can be requested at no charge. Waitresses are terrific and service is very swift even when restaurant is filled

My husband and I had friends who were in Columbus for Christmas and we live in Zanesville so we agreed to meet here as it was about half way for each of us. We had been there once a couple of years ago but our friend had not. We each had a beer and talked for a while before we... More

Probably a good GameDay sports bar but nothing really jumped out at me given the overall rating. I had wings, fries and a side salad as an entree. The wife had a Rubin. All were just OK. The beer list is extensive and prices are moderate to high for an informal setting.

We went here because it got decent reviews but I would rate it as average. I ordered the turkey burger - which they said was hand made - but they said they were out of it. How can you be out of a turkey burger at 7:30 on a Saturday night? I ordered the mandarin salad instead - it was... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review Kerrie M. Apologies for being out of Ground Turkey early in the evening. We have our Turkey ground for us from Krogers daily. We are not happy with any other processed Ground Turkey from any of our suppliers. Unfortunately, we had a run on Turkey Burgers that day,... More
