Great staff. High energy, loud, but fun. Great happy hour spot.
I have been here twice already. The first time I went it was packed but the food was good. They serve average pub food like burgers and brisket. However the second time I went It wasn't packed just yet we came right before the 1 o'clock lunch rush. Instead of ordering a burger I opted for a healthier option a chicken panini. My food came out cold and my waitress didn't even check up on us to see if we needed anything to drink or how the food was. I had to track her down just for water. Then to top it all of the sandwich didn't sit well with me. This place is average. Stick to the burgers.
For a Pub at this price point it was good. Tables in the back we're not crowded and able to hold an informal business conversation.
I have had better pub food . The place smelled like bleach.
Portions for Brunch based on price just seemed to be small
It’s a pub so expect pub food and pub atmosphere however it was warm friendly and welcoming. Crowd was convivial. Would go again for a relaxed easy meal and drink.
Very accommodating. Friendly with good service and food.
