As usual, the food & service were excellent. I do miss the giant picture of Samuel Beckett though.

Being one of three people in the entire restaurant at 11am for brunch. You would think the home fries would have been served hot. The toast wasn’t at all toasty or brown.

We ordered a "bread basket with an assortment of jams and jellies" and received a basket with 4 slices of toasted bread (2 types) and four pats of cold butter. The "jams and jellies" did not come with the basket and we had to ask specifically for them. What we received was 4 individually packed Smuckers jams (grape and blackberry sugar free variety). Apart from that one type of bread tasted like actual garbage to the point that we all couldnt swallow it. It tasted like it had gone bad weeks ago. We had to send it back, luckily they took it off the bill.

Someone in our party is vegetarian and requested vegetables with her eggs rather than bacon/sausage and received one half tomato, slightly roasted. That was their vegetable offering. The rest of the food was decent, nothing to write home about, and nothing I'd want to pay this kind of money for again.

Once again, a delight!

I have had and heartily recommend: the onion soup, the burrata&prosciutto, the Mac and cheese skillet, the Chicken Milanese, the burger, and the sautéed salmon.

I have seen people turned away without a reservation so don’t risk it!

Pleasantly quiet on a Sunday evening in the rear of the restaurant. Burgers were good Caesar salad was skimpy. Waiter was not sufficiently attentive - never offered water refill.

Amazing decor, ambiance, and food. If you're looking for an amazing pub with great burgers and great scenery then this is your spot. They have happy hour until 6 and then all night drink specials. Definitely a nice after work spot or even great for date night. The noise level isn't bad at all. I can still hear myself talk if that means anything. Lol.

All in all, great food, service, and attention to detail. Must try.

This is my go to spot for this neighborhood!! Historically I have been I huge fan of the burger with onion jam, bacon and cheddar! So. Good. Alas, a person needs more than a burger eventually, I’m happy to report the rest of the menu doesn’t disappoint. The Salmon with Mushrooms and Spinach, the French Onion Soup, and the Mac and cheese are all superb.

I have seen people turned away without a reservation, don’t risk it.

Food was ok, but service was slow as anything. We ordered drinks and it took 15 minutes to get the drinks back to the table. Overall the ambiance was great, but dimmed by the service.

Our group of four included two 65 year olds and two 28 year olds. By 7:45 the noisier post work crowd had dwindled and we could easily converse. The food was tasty, healthy, and a nice combination of pub and finer dining. Will come again for sure.

The service was great - friendly and accommodating (they let us order from the kids menu for our toddlers even though that menu wasn’t available yet). We were there mid morning but it was empty, which was useful with young kids and for talking. The food was good. The goat and spinach omelette was ok but could have used more seasoning/flavor. The French toast was quite yummy. Others in our group enjoyed the fish and chips and the avocado toast.

On this Friday evening at 5 we encountered a boisterous Happy Hour, and were seated as far back in the restaurant as possible. The restaurant is adjacent to the Club Quarters Hotel, which made dinner after traveling, very handy. The limited menu offered great food.
