    Poor service.Server never checked on our table unless we flagged her down. Didn’t bring kids drinks. Food was over cooked and burnt for main courses. Appetizers were fine.

    Went for Mother's Day Brunch. Place had special's but the server was unaware of them. She had to go ask for "clarification" or "more information" several times. Also, we would request items, like water or ketchup, a couple times and she would forget to bring them back. After a coupe of attempts, we told my 4 year old they were out of ketchup because I didn't want to ask anymore. Food was decent at least.

    Mallory needs to learn to stop flirting and check on her customers more often. Since Ive been a server for years in the past, I understand wanting to talk with people but yesterday, she only checked in my table twice.

    Service was absolutely horrible. All night we had to look for our server and flag her down. Drinks were extremely weak or watered down. I have a very low tolerance, it usually takes me 1 to 2 drinks to get buzzed or drunk. Last night I had five and felt nothing. Drink prices also vary from bar to bar which there shouldn’t be an inconsistency like that.

    As always, the food was AMAZING. There was a band playing that night — in retrospect not that suprising given it was the day before st patty’s — which made it hard to hear. Be wary of being close-ish to the band. Main reason I have to dock stars is that our waiter straight up disappeared half way through. We had to bother other servers for things like drinks or napkins and even the cheque. He also forgot to bring stuff like drinks when he WAS paying attention :|

    I went with my sister for dinner on one of the coldest nights of the year and we were sat at the table right next to the fireplace - it was perfect! The food is great, I had the fish and chips. My sister had the grilled chicken sandwich which I tried and was one of the best chicken sandwiches either of us has ever had. The service was also fantastic, attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend!

    Two burgers with fries and a Cobb salad with chicken, two glasses of wine and two seltzer’s cost $75 without tip!!! Prices have greatly increased since the pandemic started.

    The Shannon Rose of CliftonResponded on November 30, 2021Hi Deborah, thank you for your review and feedback. Unfortunately we've had to raise our prices somewhat for certain items as there's supply issues in the food industry and increased costs for us as well. We hope you still enjoyed your meal and understand our reasoning for this. We welcome you to dine in with us again soon.

    Four of us ate here on a Saturday evening before going through the Dasher’s light show in Newark. We wanted to get into the Holiday spirit early in the season. We each had different meals and we all really liked what we had, from pot pie to fish & chips and a burger. Really good pub food. Definitely recommend this location!

    Really bad, and by really bad, I mean just bad. Food was bad, everything about it. Fish tacos literally stank when they came to the table. Reuben was not a Reuben, it was a bad corned beef sandwich. They have a nice beer menu, but didn’t have any of the beers I ordered, which was not such a fun game of the server taking the order, going away for a few minutes, and then coming back to tell me they didn’t have that one. If you are thinking about going to this restaurant, please do not, there are other places in direct area that have edible food. Other the other hand, if you have some farm animals that need to graze this is your spot.

    Our server, Nick, was poor. He was unprepared and didn't seem to think. One of my party requested a glass of water and Nick walked away without asking the other person seated at the table if they wanted water, too. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich and asked for a side of coleslaw. Nick says it comes with coleslaw so I said fine. When the sandwich came, I didn't see the coleslaw at first then noticed it was on the sandwich. Nick said "i told you it came with coleslaw" so I responded that yes, he did but I anticipated it was a side serving, not on the sandwich. After he brought the glass of water, he said, oh, I forgot a straw. He must've had to go to target to buy them because he was gone a while. Then came back with an unwrapped paper straw and placed it on the dirty table after touching it with his bare hands. We couldn't even get a menu but you can place a straw on the table? Thoughtless. Then the music was blasting and made any conversation futile. Overall this was not a pleasant visit and it'll be a long time before I think about going back. Btw, the pulled pork sandwich was not as good as the sliders that used to be on the menu.
