    The high ceilings can make it challenging to hear if there are some loud kiddos or adults close to your table. The tables are a bit close to each other for my taste, but the amazing staff and good food made it totally worth it!

    We are 8 women who have worked together for years and can only get together annually. It was quiet as it was a week day, so it was easy to hear everyone. We'll come back again.

    We got there for 5:45 and they had 2 items on a special new years menu. One of which was sold out and advised only after we tried to order it. We were looking forward to Shepards Pie and had to settle for burgers. Fish and chips was also disappointing as it was frozen or at least seemed like it was out of freezer. Cocktails were good but that isn’t enough to make me ever go again. Also as we sat there after our meal that completely cleared table out from under us. I guess they must have been closing early as there were empty tables so we weren’t holding up any seatings. Overall very disappointing

    We were a fairly large crowd of eight people.  We sat in the dining room. Food was yummy, and our Waitress was wonderful. I think our group was a little loud, apologies to the rest of the diners. This is a  Great place for groups and we really enjoyed the atmosphere.

    We have dined here several times and there are so many better options in the area. This time just like the last our service was terrible. The server took a solid 10 minutes to show up to our table and when she did she was miserable. Took her forever to return to our table for anything. The food is just ok and just not worth the extremely long wait.

    Our food was mediocre at best. Turkey wrap was really a stuffing rap with scant turkey. Chili tasted out of a can. Just not great. So many other choices in the area. This should not be one of them.

    Our waitress appeared quickly, we had a lot of requests, and she fulfilled them promptly and cheerfully. The food came hot, and well-prepared. Overall a very good experience. Not a fan of the open ding room, echoed a lot, but that's a personal choice, not a criticism. Fun food, great staff.

    We had a dinner date with friends we hadn't seen all year. We chose the restaurant based on our previous experiences there. Unfortunately our waitperson was nowhere to be found after taking our orders and we had to have other staff bring us the add-ons we requested with our initial orders and make requests for other items. I have to assume they were new. We skipped desert because dinner took too long. On a happy note the food was well-prepared and yummy.

    My husband and I had dinner here before a concert at The Kate. I chose The Little Pub based off their interesting menu. My hot honey chicken sandwich was cooked perfectly, crispy outside and juicy inside. My husband’s fish tacos were excellent. Big pieces of fried cod. The Caesar side salad was great. They have a really cute seasonal cocktail menu. I had the hibiscus coconut Margarita. Delish. This is definitely going to be on our date night restaurant rotation. I can’t wait to try more dishes.

    It was my birthday and I made a reservation. Not only did they not have anything in stock that I specifically chose the place for, our waitress completely forgot my brothers drink and my twin sisters complete order. They never brought my brothers drink even though he asked twice. My boyfriend asked for sweet potato fries with his meal and it came out with regular fries. I asked for a side of Mayo, it didn’t come out. Then my twin sister had to reorder her food after the waitress was like “oops” and she didn’t get her food until after everyone else was already done eating. It was her birthday too obviously so it was very disappointing. We also got the calamari and it was soggy and so chewy it was impossible to eat. And to top it all off we couldn’t even hear our party talking because there were a bunch of drunk older people yelling at the top of their lungs. Oh and also they never gave us enough cups for water for the table and only filled up the carafes one time even though one carafe couldn’t even be split between 4 people. (We had 11)

    We arrived early at 3:30 PM for our 4:00 reservation and got the best seat in the house right in front of the fireplace (gas) in the bar side of the establishment. Cozy and warm. The food was good as was the cabernet. Time stretched on well after we were finished eating and drinking at a nearly 3 hour stay. They were very forgiving as by the time we left it was packed. I apologized to the hostess and she was very gracious and welcoming telling me no worries and happy we enjoyed ourselves.

    Went out with another couple for a casual dinner, we were given a specials as well as a dinner menu, we were also given a choice of rooms to sit in. My friend picked the bar room area. Our waiter greeted us promptly and water was provided. Drinks were good, a great pour for wine . The menu is extensive and it was hard to decide so we ordered apps and continued to look for entrees. Pickle brined chicken wings and vegetable egg rolls were tasty. Varied entrees we’re ordered, and most everyone was happy, I will say no one was claiming “this is so amazing “ but everything was tasty between the Reuben/Rachel, salmon salad, and pulled pork tacos. I apparently made the wrong choice, the fish and chips. There were two small heavily battered fingers of fish, and warm off tasting coleslaw, the sweet potato fries were the best part. Not impressed with this at all for the price, or even for any price. Next time I’ll order something else for sure. So we will certainly be back to give it another try. The atmosphere was inviting and perhaps a fried chicken or pulled pork entree would be a better choice.
