Excellent variety of food, great service and a fantastic bar menu. All servers have a great attitude and appear to enjoy their employment. Jennifer is a great bartender and creator of drinks.

I would like to rate this location higher but the food is hit or miss. Still, I keep returning, so the atmosphere and beer must be a winner.

This is a great pub. Large selection of local beers. And I got my Gin and Tonic. It's quite large, so it can accommodate large groups. Lots of young people and great staff. Very friendly and helpful. I had a portobello sandwich. Delicious. Fries are made there and plentiful. Delicious!
