“Not for eating”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

This place has a cosy atmosphere but they keep upping the prices to ridiculous for below average food. We were hungry while having a few beers and decided to order in spite of the absurd prices, $20 for nachos, $8 for fries? A mistake; cold, flavourless and small portions to top it off after all that money spent. Having to state online that you clean your lines is not very reassuring. Too bad the owners of this chain don't taste their own food to improve on taste and lower the prices to encourage people to order.

“Nice spot for lunch in this trendy neighborhood”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

4 for lunch on a frigid weekday afternoon. Greeted warmly and promptly. Seated at the table of our choice without need for a reservation. Burgers were good, fish was fair (a little greasy), soup was great and the chips were as expected. Turkey club was good too. Nothing outstanding or below par to note. This is part of a small area chain worthy of going to with a family, co-workers or a date. All good.

“Pub fare nothing special”
Reviewed September 19, 2013 via mobile

Sat indoors. Tv on with sport on. As visitors from UK, this isn't typical of a UK pub. I had prime rib with scallop pots and veg which was cauliflower and broccoli. Husband had burger with guacamole and bacon. Both meals were ok but nothing exceptional.service was good. Sam Adams beer was good but half pints not good value. Have a pint.
