We have eaten here perhaps 8 times in the many years it has been opened. Good central location and menu to appeal to all. Food was a little above average and service the same. Pretty good value for price.

The first time I ate here, just a few months prior, my meal was very good. The second time, we took my in-laws, the food was actually rather awful. I'm not sure if it had to do with the dishes that we ordered or a change in staff. The bar area is nice (especially in the summer) and I would definitely recommend stopping here for drinks with friends.

Appetizers were great. Had nachos & calamari very yummy and unique. Daughter had steak and thought it was great. Others had burgers also enjoyed. I had caesar salad with grilled chicken which I did not enjoy, Chicken very dry, mostly iceberg lettuce. Luckily, I was full from appetizers. We were seated in dining room which was very noisy considering it was not even full, like an echo chamber.

Great option if you are craving some English pub food or hearty American fare. I love the new quinoa salad with grilled protein and the skinny coconut cocktail!

We wanted a pub like atmosphere and found it here. We ate at the bar but they do have a great outdoor space for diners. We enjoyed reuben sandwiches and drinks. Think this becomes a college hangout later in the night. We ate around 8pm and it was starting to get loud by the time we left.
