“Pub 25-Great Burger and Wedge Salad but you will not feel special!!”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

My husband and I have been here a bunch of times with just the two of us and other times with friends...we like to sit at the bar. The food has always been good...especially the burgers and wedge salad...the fried chicken sandwich is a bit dry...inside atmosphere is fun and casual with a fire place but it is VERY LOUD...good music...Billy Joel playing tonight...outside there are chairs on the patio and fire pit is fun but lots of smokers huddling...the last two times we have been there my husband and I had three drinks each...including $10 a glass for wine and absolute vodka and cranberry (not sure of price)...appetizer and dinner for each of us. It is very INSULTING when the bartenders and/or owner make a tray with about 10 shots of some type for SPECIAL patrons who have only been at the bar for 1/2 the time we have and get served these "on the house" shots...maybe these are someone's friends...it was CLEAR that these were on the house drinks for people who just showed up and were only drinking beer...maybe they are good friends of the owners or bartenders but there should be a better way to treat your favorites or your friends with out insulting others...Vazzy's in Monroe used to do the same thing and we stopped going there...bartenders and owners should think before you pour freebies for friends and insult your paying customers...OR learn to be discreet...we are good tippers too...not sure we will continue to go back...

“Continued great food and service - try the wings”
Reviewed March 1, 2012

Super food and service in a PUB / Sports Bar environment. The wings are the best north of the Mason-Dixon line!

“Just bad”
Reviewed February 29, 2012


Had the meatloaf sandwich which was good but the onion rings were dripping with grease. No taste of onions. They parked us in front of the fireplace which was terribly hot. Asked the waiter to turn it off(gas fireplace) or move us but they wouldn't. Overpriced drinks. Not going back. Sorry.

“Great food, atmosphere and service.”
Reviewed December 10, 2011

My husband and I have visited this place several times since it opened and love it! The fireplace, friendly staff and creative twists on pub food keeps us coming back.

It has a great bar that runs the length of the restaurant where you can eat, drink and watch sports on the wide screen t. There are also several tables for dining. It can get a little noisy when full, but worth the visit.

I highly recommend Pub25!
