“Nice pub, expensive for what you receive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Always a stop after golf. Plenty of beers on tap. Can get very loud due to poor acoustics. Food is ok. Basic burger is $14, and not worth it.

“Absolutely Overpriced & Blah”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

This is not a one off review, we live in the area and have been to Pub 25 quite a few times. Unfortunately my wife keeps dragging us to this place for one single menu item - the House Chips. In all fairness these are pretty good - they are fresh potato chips with a Gorgonzola sauce topped with more crumbled Gorgonzola and bacon. Order them because from there everything goes downhill real fast.

Nothing else that comes out of the kitchen is worthy of the prices on the menu. $15 for the "Chopped Cobb" which sounds great on paper but is really some lettuce, pre cooked chicken, and if you dig real hard you might find the avocado and chopped egg. Pitiful.

I have had the burger and don't bother telling them how you want it. They have no clue how to cook it - medium might as well be a shirt size. The Lazy Cowboy is an edible $12 meatloaf sandwich; the steak sandwich is horrible.

Bottom line - hit the bar for a few drinks and order an appetizer or two. Stay away from the real menu items or point your car in the opposite direction and find McGuire's.

“Fun night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

We called ahead for a reservation and when we got there, the friendly hostess seated us within the time frame she told us. The bartender was helpful and timely with our drinks. Our waitress was attentive and kept filling our water glasses. The food was delicious "pub" food. Fries were cooked to perfection! We were never rushed. Prices were great. We'll be back!

“out of hand bartender”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

We stopped by for the first time Friday. We looked in and thought it was very inviting so we went in. The bartender took quite a bit of time coming over to get our drink order because she was involved in conversation with others. She told us and everyone that she was turning fifty. I guess that means it was okay for her to be loud while doing in the time we were there four shots with other patrons. On top of that she was going around and telling others that the next round was on her. I sure hope she was the owner the way she gave things away. The good part was the other bartender was nice and our food was also good. I am sure they have a lot of regulars,but i wonder at what expense to the bar.
