Ordered chicken Murphy off the special menu. Could not even cut the chicken with a knife. Very, very disappointed.

This restaurant, newly renovated and converted from a Charlie Browns, is so nice inside. My family and I have eaten there 4 or 5 times since the grand opening and want to love it. The bar is beautiful and always seems to be busy, especially in the evenings. When we came as a larger group and wanted to watch a certain football game, they gave us our own small room with a dedicated television. Don't know why they can't get the food right; it is so frustrating. We last visited on St. Patrick's Day. The corned beef was so dry that it was borderline inedible. The After in Flanders (believe it or not) can manage to pull of a good corned beef dinner, why can't this place? Hire a real chef!! The shepherd pie was fairly tasteless but not terrible. The daily pasta special (vodka sauce) was so poorly executed that I don't know how to describe it. The only fairly decent dishes so far were the kid meal chicken fingers and a beet salad with lots of tangy goat cheese (beets were from a can, though). Hopefully the bar business can keep them afloat.

The atmosphere here is great. They have a great variety of beer in tap & the service is good. The food is not outstanding .

The food was not very good. The cheese on the grilled cheese wasn't even melted and another entree was burnt. Not worth a return trip.

I was here with my family, the menu looked delicious. The entire staff walked around like zombies. Everything came out wrong and tasteless. Don't waste your time....they'll be closed in a year or two.
