“Great vibe!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile

We love this place! My fiancé doesn't like beer but they serve really great mixed drinks as well. Always great music and food.....the Buffalo burger is great.....and nice feel about the bar. Just go really because it fills up quick especially on the summer weekends.

“Live Music + Great Food = Jack of the Wood”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

My wife & I ate at this restaurant in July, 2010 - we found it purely by chance and lucked into a table right up front by the small stage where some really great live music entertained us while we ate some great food (tip: don't order a Guinness to drink and get the Guinness stew, whoa.)

“Bluegrass Thursday”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Stopped in for a bite and to see the bluegrass band. Looks kinda seedy from the outside, maybe because the first day I walked by there was a homeless guy parked on the bench attached to the front of the bar. But anyway, it was a nice pub, with a mixed crowd. Hubby and I had a few drinks, the nachos, wings and reuben. Wings were the best. Nacho toppings kinda skimpy. Pastrami a little fatty. Bluegrass was good. We stayed for a set and it was fun.

“nice bar/pub atmosphere”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We didn't get to stay for a band, but the pub fare was typical, and the beer selection very good. Lots of local brands. The Green Man ESB was very good.
