The food was good but there were only 2 waitstaff on duty and a lot of people came in Labor Day evening. The waitstaff worked extremely hard including running to please everyone. Food was cooked well and was tasty.

Servers were excellent. All else subpar. Disappointed at available selection of beers. I say that because they were out of first two choices. Third choice was warm and flat. Impressed how positive server stayed while we finally found an acceptable beer.

Right in the heart of the CBD, this spot is a great place for a business lunch. It gets busy so plan ahead. Good menu, good prices, dishes served hot and tasty. Service staff are fantastic. Can’t get a bad meal here.

We called into this 'pub' for lunch and it was great. Fantastic choice of beers and the lunch was tasty. Nothing special but very good. It is pub food, if you are British or Irish you will love it. The service could not have been...More
