Visited after a football game, yes it was busy but it took almost an hour to get our drinks. No apology, they don't care. We're still here....I will complete the review if we ever get our food...,1 hour and waiting.

Nice location downtown with a big outside deck. The beer was cold and the selection was excellent. I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Pretty average food, nothing really stuck out. It was a dreadfully hot day and the restaurant was not very well cooled. Would be a better drinking spot than a lunch with the family spot.

The boiled egg appetizer was delicious. Boiled egg is encased by a meat (beef or sausage I think) and fried golden brown and served with a mustard base sauce- so good! The Bangers and Mash was plenty big and so was the stool pigeon chicken...More
