First time at restaurant.. we were sat about 10 min after our reserved time. Our waitress failed to mention that menu options were only available till a certain time and we missed out and had to order from a very skimpy late night menu. We came out of way (hour drive) for wings and a sandwich. Totally not worth it.

The service was sub par at best. The pub table was smaller than any pub table I’ve ever sat at before. 4 trays could not fit on the pub table. The trays were ridiculously large and unnecessary. The meal portions were not big at all and would have fit in a regular plate. The waitress came to take or drink order, or food order and then gave us the check, never saw her again. Will never go back and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone

It was difficult to find the restaurant. We could not drive up to the entrance. The desk said that there was valet parking, but we were frustrated because access is not defined. Too complicated to get to.

Bub City is a fun dining experience for after work, family or date night. Best if there is live music on stage but fun even without.

Food is good, service is attentive. Drink special (bourbon old fashioned on day we visited) was excellent and POTENT!

We got there late for our reservation and the staff was super accommodating and got us a table fairly quick despite our reservation being removed since we were more than 15mins late. Great food service and music.

Fun environment. Nicely busy. The beer served in a small wine glass is ridiculous(extremely).
The food portions could be improved. The tater tots were undercooked. Nice people .

Upon checking in, the hostess was kind of rude. I had to repeat myself a few times.

The server was good but seemed very unamused.

We had a horrible experience our most recent trip here and won’t be back anytime soon. Waited over 50 minutes for our food and when I asked about it she went to check and pretended
Ike it was just ready now, but it was warm like it had been sitting around and was not fresh. This was not our first time here, but very disappointed in our last time. Also, had a $10 coupon for our meal that was never used. There’s much better places out there!

Saturday night in February at 6:30pm. It was crazy busy with hockey parties and theater patrons. We were sat almost on time and ordered immediately. We had a unique situation that the manager took care of personally and addressed all of our needs and issues well beyond reasonable expectations. Our waitress was busy but she was friendly and present. The food was very good. It was pricey which seems to be the typical for the area. My largest complaint would be the volume of the music. I don’t go out to eat to hear every word of every song. I go out to eat to socialize with friends and family which was extremely difficult to do given the obscenely loud music. I enjoyed the music, just not the ear piercing volume. Sadly, this seems to be par for the course in that area as well. We will be back, but I would cry happy tears if my ears didn’t bleed next time.

A very busy Saturday night. Our waitress seemed to have too many tables as service was sketchy at best. Our food took extra time to arrive due because of how busy they were at the time. The manager did come out and apologize for the wait which was appreciated. Food was good although the sampler platter was smaller than I would have thought so I did not think it was a very good value at all and I wouldn't recommend this if you are hungry.

huge shoutout to our server, who was friendly, attentive and prompt. we were having dinner before a show at Joe's next door, and she walked us over so that we did not have to go back outside in the cold and snow. I wish I remembered her name, because she was excellent!

We like how the service works as a team. There was live performance on stage which the children enjoyed watching the artist sing and play guitar. Friendly and efficient teamwork provided our table of 8 a very enjoyable lunch before heading to the theater across the way.

Had Sunday brunch here. I really enjoyed it! The atmosphere was awesome with great country music. My server was attentive and replaced my hot cider without asking because he noticed it wasn't warm. Food was good, I only eat vegetarian so I can't comment on the BBQ but the brunch tacos were good.

It was solid tasty bbq. I am currently on a no animals with legs diet so I had the salmon which was really good. My wife loved her short rib. We were there early on a saturday so the ambiance was perfect for a family with kids but I could imagine it getting loud and crowded later. Overall I was quite glad we went.
