We went to the Rod and Gun with 2 families equaling 7 people. The server was quick and efficient and very friendly. Our food was good and came out quickly. The patio was secluded for being on a busy street. I would recommend.

Stopped with the wife to meet some old friends, fantastic spot! The chowder is killer, the beer is cold, and the waitresses were spot for on. Will definitely come back.
