“local "haunt"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

stopped into the griffon pub totally by chance.
great little pub that offers traditional pub grub and some locally brewed beers. very eclectic decor that is accentuated by visitors making $1 "donations" to the "wall paper".

“Great Hole-in-the-Wall bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

Interesting history behind the building. Dollar bills stapled on every square inch of the bar. Dark atmosphere. Local and domestic beers on tap.

“Good pub food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I have visited several and had very good pub food. The reubens and fish and chips were excellent. Good selection of local beers. It gets very crowded when a football game is being televised.

“We went 3 nights in a row!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We really enjoyed it the first night so we went back the next night. Not only did they recognize us but the bartender remembered what the 3 of us drank!

“Great place to watch a game”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

Definitely more of a "dude" hangout, very casual with dark wood paneling and dollar bills stapled to every square inch of the walls. Great beer and a huge HDTV, definitely a great place to watch a game.
