This restaurant was ok on all levels. Nothing was bad, but nothing stood out or made it unique. It seems like the sort of place to go for tavern food that serves its purpose or if you are into beer.

Sometimes I'll take my Senior pass and ride the train out to University City from the western suburbs just to hoist a few at this congenial place. I have always found the place to be attentive and at times, frequented by interesting regulars. Bar is complete and when I have sandwiches or tavern fare I have never been disappointed. And... More

It seems that we arrived when our server was about to end her shift, so we were left hanging for quite a while until we were able to flag down a replacement. Other than that, the service here was not bad (definitely friendly, if a bit slow). We had beer and cider, which was fine. Also had the appetizer sampler,... More

This place was close to where I was staying & the reviews were good so I thought I'd give it a try. Bad decision! I ordered the Fish & Chips which is supposed to be a featured item. It was okay.

Had lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Not very busy -- University out of session -- had a good mix of sandwiches and a couple of nice beers. Low key -- a good spot. Will be back

We were to gather near Franklin Field for a pregame tailgate - but the weather was raw- rain and snow...in April... So we moved out group indoors to New Deck Tavern. A wonderful spot as pubs go- friendly and attentive staff and the food ,although typical bar food was great for quick eats. There is outdoor seating - but with... More
