Food was typical pub fare, nothing to write home about. Service was poor. Waitress forgot to bring second round of drinks. I could see her thru the kitchen door talking with co-workers. She brought check and didn’t come back to the table, we waited at least 15 minutes. My husband got up and went to hostess stand to pay. Manager did ask for feedback so hopefully waitress learns her lack of attentiveness cost the restaurant. My family will not be returning.

Not what we expected as far as atmosphere and customer service but the food was good.
Will add to my take out list.

This is the 3rd time going with my wife and can’t get a waitress to come back to the table. This time we got up and left because no one waited on us do not get seated in the corner on right when you walk in. you get no service . Been several times with my son and we eat at the bar and service is great. Food is great also. Need management to pay attention to what is going on. Never see anyone in charge. Who ever is the owner needs to watch his restaurant going to loose out. Very disappointed in service ,great location, Great atmosphere but lacking waiters

We had to wait over 30 mins past our reservation to be seated. They were very busy so understandable. The food was excellent!! Bacon wrapped scallops and sticky ribs were my favorites. We will definitely visit again!

My second time here. The service and food are consistently above average. I'm vegan and the options are good. I feel so comfortable here as the distance between tables is 6 feet plus. Can't wait to return.

Mac and cheese were excellent, very cheesy. Fish and chips were good, fish was a dark heavier batter, fries were thin and good. Parmesan truffle fries were good but for $5, it wasn’t too big of a serving. 3 pretzels with sauce for appetizer, this was good. The tacos were good. It’s nice that they let you mix up the tacos, so you do not have to get 3 of the same ones. Our waitress was just ok. Just a flat personality, seemed like she didn’t want to be there. But the younger girl who delivered our food was refreshing. Smiley and personable. We had a fish bowl and an apple cider Manhattan both were great.

Another great experience! All four of us enjoyed our dinners. We had our favorite Nashville chicken tenders to start. A little different than usual but still delicious. Instead of the usual large chicken pieces they are cut smaller but still a good amount. I had the pot roast sandwich and it was delicious!! We will be back soon!

Food and beer was great, but service was just okay. We requested a high top table as part of our reservation but was unfortunately not granted that. Our waitress seemed annoyed with us from the start and we had to ask several times for things like napkins and water. We had never been there before and she never offered to talk about offerings or tell us about the restaurant or beers. After our 1.5 hours was up, we were asked to leave (which we understood) but didn’t appreciate the tone or annoyance with us because we were waiting for someone to return from the restroom and for our growler purchase and weren’t doing it quick enough. Great food and atmosphere, but would have appreciated more welcoming staff experience.

Experience is consistent which is what I value important when it comes to food. Pretzels are great and their tacos are delicious. I’ve had shrimp and cod tacos. Both are excellent and a great value! Hard to eat all 3....but they are so good, there are never leftovers. Handcut fries. Yum

Food was very good. Wings half off on Wednesday so that was a good deal. Beer was very good and a solid price. Service was very good not great, but with Covid I can understand probably running a smaller staff. Very comfortable with the precautions they were taking, felt comfortable eating there. Would take a trip over the bridge to go again.

Food was delicious! We started with the preztels, I had the steak tips & swapped the rice for mashed & they were so creamy & delicious, they also let me swap the veg for a side salad. My husband got the bacon burger w fries, he ate the entire thing & talked about how good it was several times. Fries were really good, cajun style flat fry & was AMAZING! Service was great & overall feel of the restaurant was very comfortable. We will definitely be going back!

Very disapointed scallops smelled bad and were extremely salty. Sides were not very warm. The meal was not charged which I appreciated but would have been nice if server checked to see how our meals were. She never came over to table until the end.
