I've been to the Magic Lantern Tannery Pub a few times now and the food is just underwhelming. I love the big screen for football games and the beer menu is good. However, the pub-level food is just not that good so don't go there...More

Pub fare with good menu but poor quality. On a busy night food came quickly but was undercooked. Thyme mixed in with mayo on a blt was unappetizing.
