“Service with a scowl.”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

I work in a bar (not in the same area) and feel somewhat qualified to review this place. It is quite simply terrible. The bar is old fashioned, extremely overpriced for the area and the service from the majority of the bartenders is slow and very unfriendly. One blonde haired bartender in particular is awful. She has a constant scowl on her face, will not make small talk with customers and spends most of her time using her cellphone. Before you all think this is a one off I have had the misfortune of being in this establishment over 5 times and each time was the same as before. Abigails, Stiles Inn, Lindas Driftwood and Amsterdam Alley are all bars which have their own problems but yet they are all more appealing than this place. Its a shame because it has the potential to be a great bar/restaurant if they knew how to run it. Please avoid

“Great all around Bar food”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

If you are looking for a great place to have a drink and something to eat, the Linwood is your place. Now going by the name the Linwood Station Stop, it is the same great food as always. Plenty of Beers on Tap and by Bottle to try. The menu for food is appealing to all. There is something for everyone. The Pizza is really the best and is a big seller. The sandwiches are to die for. They have a special of a salad, home made chips, pizza and a pitcher of your choice all for $39.99. Enough to feed 6 for the price, and what you get. This is a must stop. You will not be disappointed, give it a try.

“Nice pub, solid food”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Ate here several times during my weeklong stay. Food was good as was the service. Its a place where many locals come to watch the games, but the staff were very considerate and they remembered me on my second visit. Not fancy but good burger/sandwich fare. Train stop is practically across the street. Will eat here again on my next visit.

“True american burger house”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

This place serves true american burgers. I had the porky pig which is a once in a lifetime experience (mostly because you can have a stroke afterwards, but hey, it was worth the risk).
The place is known for good beer (more than 30 different taps) and good folks of the region go there which makes the ambiance very familiar. Take a look a the story on the menu and the old pictures on the wall.
It's good for a nice lunch or a good night out.

They probably have all the sports channel that broadcasts in the many many flat screens!

“Great bar food”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Great place for a beer and something to eat. The pizza is to die for. It is the best around and you can never finish it all. The burgers are very good and cooked to perfection. Never had a bad meal here at all. Give it a try. Very reasonable price wise. You won't be disappointed.
