“Good Place to Meet”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

This is a fun place with a lively atmosphere to meet for pub food and libations. The food is average at best and sometimes poor. My grilled rueben was soggy, with stringy, barely edible corned beef. Overall, the boisterous, happy vibe makes the food palatable.

“Decent Pub Food, but mainly have come for drinks”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

I've been here numerous times, mostly for a drink after work with some colleagues. We have ordered food on a couple of occassions, but nothing so far has really stood out as better than average to good pub fare. I have yet to find a favorite, but a lot of people really like the wings. To me they're not bad, but there are definately better in the Valley between the independent restaurants and chains. All in all, I would rate it as a good place to meet some friends for a drink, but no need to order food unless your hungry.

“Surprise!”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

Never have high expectations for pub food. While the service here can be spotty, the food always exceeds our expectations while we dine in a cozy local environment.

“Fits like an old sneaker”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

A nice popular local pub. With the average pub fare. With nice beer choices. You should go away from here satisfied and content. It a nice comfortable place to go for the payday steak sandwich and pizza night.
