I don't write reviews often but after constant disappointment I feel like I need to write about my experiences. I find at this location the service is a hit or miss. Most servers are nice, but a couple of them aren't very friendly or approachable....More

My buddy and I visited mid-afternoon and very hungry. We were met quickly by a very nice lady server and had some craft beers on the table in short order. The menu was surprisingly varied for both food and drink. I had a Ploughman's plate...More

I chose this place to have a quick bite, Food was just average, but pricey. It can get loud inside. I would suggest this place as a spot to have a drink with friends, but not for a meal.

Dropped in for the Monday fish and chip special and it was fantastic. One nice sized piece of fish of the day (you'll have to ask). Parking on the street at times would be challenging though. They have an $8 breakfast that looks great. My...More
