“Unexpected deliciousness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2011

It's a standard pub-type environment, so you would think, standard food, not bad but nothing to go back for. I went because there was really good local band playing, not really expecting to find anything exciting for my taste buds. We all ordered different steaks and one of us pork ribs. We were so delighted we spent the meal passing things around to each other because they all tasted so good. No wilty lettuce here either ! The salads were unusually fresh, above-average-ly loaded with finely chopped veggies and bacon. Cloud like home made yeasted rolls. Two of us had prime rib and the other a ribeye--unexpectedly flavorful beef. A nice surprise, not too expensive and intelligent efficient service. The people in this kitchen know what they are doing.
Sports events are a religion, TVs on every wall, open mic nite and live bands on a regular schedule. Fun and less than a mile off the freeway.
