Was so looking forward to going based on reviews. When we arrived it was closed for business. Wish I would have paid more attention to the reviews. One nice person did mention it.

I had a steak and my husband had the ribs. Everything was very good. Even my child's hotdog was above average.

This establishment has been here a while. Many selections of food & drinks. Food is worth the prices. The bar is always busy & there is always a good time to be had. The bar staff, bus boys/gals, greeters & wait staff are remarkable. They...always work hard, very friendly & knowledgable which makes the experience that much better. If it wasn’t for the employees I wouldn’t come back. Why do I say this since I just raved about this place?? Is because the owner/management is a real a*#hole!! He treats his employees like they are slaves. He yells at them while spraying spit, he calls them nasty names, belittles them, he throws things at them or towards them, etc. I can go on because what I have seen first hand.....I say he is a BULLY!!! I’m glad I dont work for him because he would stop immediately. So with that being said. Take the ownership out of this rating and this place would be a perfect 5 stars. Come ye come all but beware & observe the behaviors of the leadership.More

Good place to bring out of towners to. Unique menu items and excellent service. Mounted animals, birds and fish in the pub are a must see.

I figured that since the food is so expensive it would be good but it was terrible me and my friend took a few bites of our entree and gave up on it. My friends food was soggy and mine was completely bland. The only...things we ate that we liked were the cheese sticks and the mashed potatoes which seemed to be instant potatoes. The staff was very sweet but the food definitely needs to be worked on. 👏🏻More

Wow. What a menu. Had we not stopped in Wheeling for the night, and checked Trip Advisor, we would have never found this hidden gem. Great food and service, and a very cool and extensive menu. Great bar too. I think this will be a...regular stop on the way east.More
