“Great Location!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

How mant pubs in Peru have waterfront views?? We happened to stop here and shared appetizers and a couple of pork tenderloin sandwiches. Sandwiches were HUGE - definitely split one for two adults!! Gals behind the bar were friendly and helpful - we would stop here again if we had the chance.

“Best Pork Tenderloin ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

One of our favorite places to go for pork tenderloins, pizza, wraps and especially to just get together with friends. Atmosphere is great in winter and summer. Has outdoor patio seating in nice weather. Live music on weekends. Great place.

“Pub along the river”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Several locals had told me to go try this place for pork tenderloins. I ordered the "piglet" size. It was plenty. The pork tenderloin was delicious. I would love to try other food on their menu. I would definitely be back for another pork tenderloin sandwich.
