This pub is dependably good. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a relaxing place to get some really great food in New Albany. The atmosphere is outstanding. But no matter how fun the atmosphere, no place can be successful without really good food. And they deliver on that score. Always excellent, and I’ve had numerous items on the menu over the past several years.

It's a great restaurant to have a fantastic meal, whether lunch or dinner. The menu has plenty to offer everyone, including some gluten free options. The only drawback is the lack of Vegan options, though they do have the Impossible Burger. The ambience and decor is really fresh and cool. The service is friendly and efficient. And our food always comes out fast. Overall, this is an awesome local kitchen/pub to get great food at a reasonable price. I do recommend getting a reservation though if going to dinner.

Our meal was fantastic, and they have the most comfortable booths I've ever sat in. However, our waitress was absent, and that made the meal difficult. At one point, she walked to our table to ask if we were ready to order, pulled out her pad after we said yes, and then just walked away. Couldn't get refills. We were there two hours, and the first third was waiting to place our order. The quality of the food and the general setting made up for it, but it started out as a very frustrating experience.

This restaurant is loud, so if you want to talk to your party, it is difficult when the place is full. Food was average to good but overpriced. My $24 dinner did not come with a salad or bread basket. Drinks are quite pricey too - $12 for a glass of wine and $8 for a craft beer. The good side was that our reservation was ready on time and our server was friendly. Probably will not return anytime soon though.

I had the Flat iron steak. It was cooked perfectly and the corn on the cob was delicious. I was debating on either the steak or the NA hot brown I’m glad I chose the steak. My friend ordered a burger she said it was very good. Her husband ordered the hot brown, didn’t like it so much. We ordered dessert, the chef’s whim which was pineapple upside cake with mango sauce. It was enough to share but we all thought it was dry, cold and had no sauce. We told our server and exchanged it for the brownie with salted caramel ice cream. Awesome!!!
