They do have fries now which is a good choice on their part. Full bar and a nice menu to choose from. They are open for lunch or late night. Pool table if you like that and Golden Tee. Hangout on the patio if weather permits. A great place to just hang out for awhile. Comfortable, low key and easy going.

Good location to meet friends after work and grab dinner and a drink. Don't look around too much, they haven't dusted since the 80's.

Heard lots of good things so we decided to go. Chose the Bleu burger. Best I've ever had. Wife had the nachos. Omg. Yummy. I'd go there again in a minute.

We can't say, with certainty, if our food poisoning came from Wellman's Pub, but we did get food poisoning the same day that we visited this neglected restaurant. Despite the smell and sticky table (which we ignored since "hey, it's a pub"), the food seemed really good. Then, my wife took a bite of her hamburger that tasted somewhat rancid. This bite, unlike the others she'd taken, was not covered in delicious rarebit cheese sauce which masked the flavor of the beef.
We did find a regional beer which we enjoyed. Boulevard wheat is worth trying if you're in the area.
