“Bar people first then families are second”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We ate there a few days ago and had the joy of hearing 4 raucous bar patrons drink way past their fill. The more they drank the more vulgar and louder their conversations became to the point where the people in the dining area could hear it. The bartender kept serving the potentially drunk customers and despite the fact that our waiter assured us the drunkards would lower their voices the barflys kept going. The food was 'meh'. Service was fine. If your a family, roll the dice and hopefully you won't have to deal with the bar crowd. We are done going here. Just not worth the noise.

“Great Pub Food!.....Very Good for Lunch!....Attentive Service!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Haven't been to the Pitney in over 5 years! (So I don't know about the kids at night and the recent help turnover)

We (4 construction crew guys) stopped in for lunch this past Saturday (6/22/13) for lunch.

We sat at the bar. Pleased to see the upgrades and new appearance! Feedback on three of the meals was very good. (Balsamic salad, French-Dip, and Cheese-steak)

The menu looked like a (B+ to A-) standard Pub menu. Menu and decor looked plenty good for lunch, might be a stretch for a romantic dinner! Saw that they had a band planned to start at 9:00PM. (Hence kids, and not many 60 year olds!)

Service was about as good as it gets! Exceptional and impressive!
(Well dressed, polite, and professional)

I would say that this is how you build a good business! Hire good help!

“Great Pub Food”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I live very close to this restaurant. I came in late for the "Happy Hour. Not a very friendly or helpful staff. Being a single - there was no up-front hello! They did play Regaee Music for two hours - picked by the bar staff, with no regard to what the over-all public woud like to listen to.

“Delicious Food, Good Music!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I have to disagree with the posters below. I have never, ever been dissappointed with the food here, and recently had the best chicken curry I've ever had in my life at Pitney Pub. Completely shocked at how delicious it was. The service is always great!

Also, the music is quite good. There is a great band that I've seen there more than once, a young teen girl is the singer. They are fabulous! We would go back just to see them play.
