If your in the area and do not want to go into the city this is the best pub and food to obtain! Alot of wierdos and working folk and fun times and great beer selection. The food is pretty good also for a bar.

I certainly was a Lucky Dog flag waver a mere 6 months ago but I'm not sure what's happened since then as their food quality/presentation has gone downhill. We dined here a couple times since July and each time noticed deficiencies in our entrees that...More
