They offer several mussel dishes, including a Korean style. On Monday's they offer all you can eat mussels. They also have other good seafood and pub food options.

Stone crab in Philadelphia? Haven't had it outside of Florida. Though the portion was small, it was worth the price. The mussels are the headliner, though. Both the white wine and the Belgian ale taste like they were straight from Brussels. Finished it off with apple bundt cake that was fantastic. Definitely a keeper.

We stopped here for lunch during the week. It was pretty dead inside, but the food was good. The servers were ok. They were happy for the business, however they could have cleaned up the areas and bathrooms better. There was visible dust, cob webs, etc. throughout the building.

Had dinner here with work colleagues. We tried a mix of the draft beers on tap all went down well. The food was also very good, big hits were the mushroom soup and the nachos. Waitress and staff were great too.

The ranch chicken blt it incredible. We have stopped here any times just for this meal. Raspberry iced tea was also a refreshing treat. The service was impeccable. We will be back.

Great beer choices and thats why we keep going back there. There are 3 different places to sit. From Casual at the bar to less casual in the mid section and in the main restaurant where there are white tablecloths . Food is average, service is good.

We have fond memories of Sunday brunch here from 10 years ago before we moved from the area. We were not disappointed! It's every bit as yummy as we remembered!

Well, I have been going to this place for a long time. No one else in the area is charging $7.50 for run of the mill beers. No wonder the bar was empty when I went there. It is difficult to say, but management, you need to get a new bartender - preferably one with a personality. Management lost their... More
