Four of us walked into the building passing three guys looking at the menu. As we walk into the restaurant there was no sign indicating if we should seat ourselves or wait to be seated. Since there was no hostess stand, we sat down at one of the four open tables. As we were looking at the menu on the table, a staff member, I am assuming the host, asked us if we have been help to the table. We said no, and he told us that we would have to leave the table since they had a waiting list. We apologized and got up to wait in the hall with the three guys, still looking at the menu. About 5 minutes later, he seats the group of 3. Confused, we look into the restaurant and notice there are still 3 open tables, and no one else waiting to be seated. A few minutes later, he comes out and looks in the hallway, glances at us and says "Hmm, You might have gotten lucky, looks like the other group that was waiting must have left" and he returns back into the restaurant. My friends and I look at eachother in disbelief. There were 3 EMPTY tables and he did not attempt to seat us. So, we left. We don't know if the food was good, but it would have had to have been out of this world to put up with this service.

This is a really great restaurant -- warm and inviting atmosphere, excellent food, central location and easy to park. We ate at the First Place Pub last year and decided to go back -- it was great both times. The ordered a wide range of food, from hamburgers to fish to mushroom pie. All were delicious. I highly recommend it!

My husband and I took a chance on this restaurant based on Yelp reviews. The place was empty when we walked in and it was around 6pm. That's usually not a good sign. Fortunately, Yelp was right and the place filled up as we dined.

The food was delicious. We ordered an appetizer of black bean tamales on polenta. They came with an avocado sauce and they were crazy-good. We also ordered the torta, which sounded strange but was also delicious (I clearly need a new word to describe good-tasting food). This is clearly NOT a lazy chef.

Also not lazy was our server, Mattie/Maddy (not sure how she spells her name). She was great! She offered some great opinions (that we asked for) and made sure we wanted for nothing during our meal.

We were so pleased with our decision to eat at First Place Pub.
