This is a nice reliable pub for basic food and good beer. When you are attending an event in Lowell, sporting preferably, this is a good place to stop and grab a bite. Extensive collection of draft and bottled beer and the usual pub food - mostly fried.

The décor is basic and pretty tired. The service is competent and functional. You don't head here for fine cuisine, you go for exuberant camaraderie and reliable basic food and drink.

What it does it does well. Garage about two blocks away if you cannot find street parking.

I've been here a million times over the years and almost always have a good time. You'll see young children eating dinner, business people after work, college kids, tourists, townies, hipsters, older people all having a good time. The upstairs is great for private functions.
The food is solid and they have a pretty good craft beer selection. The service is great but when they get busy it's hard to squeeze in to order a round. I suppose that's a problem everywhere.
In nice weather they open the big windows which makes for a great atmosphere.

This is the bar that every town wants to have. The beer is cool, the food is hot, and the staff fantastic. You can go there at night for a hopping scene, or in the afternoon for a quiet bite with a friend. The bartender remembers your name and your favorite brew after just a couple of visits and everyone whose anyone in the old mill city shows up here at some point.

If you're in or around Lowell and want an affordable bite and brew, this is where you need to go.
