Great layout & things to do (pool tables, skee ball ect). Happy hour lasts a little longer than most places we have visited. Service was good. My only complaint was a better app selection.

Pub food, decent craft beer selection, pitcher pours of beer. pool tables, darts. College kid vibe in a far from college kid area. Younger crowd for sure. Large space, good for groups and happy hours.

Nice place to go in the city to drink on the cheap. It was only $3 for a yingling. I showed up played some pool and got drunk. What a great way to spend a Thursday night.
