This is a nice lunch spot with great food and a good beer selection. The service is friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable. The whole place is nicely decorated with big comfy chairs. It was a good place to get out of winter weather.

The food is always good here. The place is clean and the staff are right there to take care of you. Portion sizes are good. Desserts are also delicious. They also have entertainment during some of the evenings at least.

An easy pub to find on the main street of Amherst, we assuredly enjoyed the fresh fish dinners, drinks, and service--topped off by a live singer of 60s music. The setting is congenial, casual, and comfy. Didn't see any children at dinner hour; but I...More

Average pub fare in convenient center of town. Friendly staff. Lobster roll was good. Fried seafood platter good too. Good selection of beers.

I know this is rated well in Amherst but I'm guessing it's because there are only a few restaurants to choose from! We had a reservation (thankfully) and the place was full but I just don't get it. We started with the crab stuffed mushrooms...More
