“Good Place for Regulars - Not Necessarily First Timers”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Stopped here while in uptown to grab a beer and some food before a concert. They advertised old fashioned and great service and food. The food was great - I had the Roast Beef Panini. Beer selection was okay but they only had one IPA that was available, on tap or bottled. However, I found the service to be less than great. If you were a regular and came often, you got immedaite and great service. For first timers (like me) that were not recognized, the service was not great at all. Having worked in a bar, I know that nothing irritates a bar tender more than people shouting orders at them or saying "hey buddy, get me a beer." Most bartenders work on a first come first serve basis or strive to do so. As I was sitting there at the bar, there were several instances of people directly behind or beside me getting their drinks before I was even asked. The bar tender knew them and brought them their "usual" or high fived them and asked what they wanted. Food was great, beer was good, service needs attention unless you want to become a regular.

“Great pub in the heart of the epicenter!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

We came to town for a concert and wanted to grab a bite to eat before the show. We decided on mortimers and absolutely loved it. The food was phenomenal and the staff was very friendly. We loved it so much that we went back after the concert. They had live music that night, which was great. We highly recommend this cafe and pub :)

“Nice Pub”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stopped in for a night cap following a Panther's game. A lot of TV's with sports, and music. Friendly staff, and good service. Beer on tap and a friendly crowd. We stayed fairly late on Sunday night and were well taken care of. I would go back in a heart beat.
