This is a nice pub right on the river walk. The food was fresh and tasty. We liked the shepherds pie and the chicken pot pie. Waiting on desert now—sure it will be as good. Looks awesome!!! Our waitress was spot on throughout our meal.

Great pub right on the river walk, good value eats, cold beer and live music. The staff are super friendly especially Janelle, our waitress. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Definitely worth a visit.

Really enjoyed Jesse on a Tuesday night in August. He had a great repertoire of songs and really nailed some U2 from the 1980's. Service was average and so were the drinks, but Jesse was worth the trip. Find out when he's performing and check...More
