The bartenders and staff are fun. The atmosphere is eclectic in a Bah Hahboh kind of way. Great menu with a create your own samwich component.

“Delicious fresh food in a fun atmosphere”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

The menu has a great variety and everything is made fresh. The portobella fries and chipotle sauce are fantastic. The burgers are delicious too. The owner and staff make you feel comfortable and treat you well. One of the best pubs in town.

“BEST lookin' hamburger I've ever seen in my life!!!”
Reviewed March 26, 2011

The food was super, and the title burger was HUGE!! Three times as much meat as anything McDonald's serves, plus a ciobatta-like roll, cheese INSIDE the pattie, sauce, tomatoes, lettuce, all the trimmin's. My Dad got the "Hatter Burger" and we all looked on, and resolved to get one of our own next time. I got a "Philly Cheese Chicken", and it was excellent, great roll and cheese. The other good thing was the sides---they offer no french fries, or commercial chips, but they make their OWN chips, and ABSOLUTELY TO DIE FOR potato wedges! I had the wedges and they were crisp and crunchy on the outside, and soft and hot inside. Yum. Also, they have specials every night and this night's were all sandwiches for $6.50. Can't beat that! Our server told us that they do no frozen food at all, it's all fresh. Excellent service, too, and fast.
Our only con about the place was the decor---we were an older group, 50 and 70's, and the garish green paint and stark lighting didn't do anything for charm for us, not cozy at all, nor did we like the rock music, but the lovely waitress turned it down for us before we even asked.
