Not as good in terms of the food as brotherhood of thieves, but a good spot for a burger. Drinks are better here but definitely come for the atmosphere. A great pit stop if bar hopping, for sure.

Get over the obvious visitor-based decor and the sidewalk sleaze intended to grab the unsuspecting tourist. This is a nice pub (or maybe a college-town bar and grill) where everybody might not know your name but you can certainly feel welcome. Service was a bit...More

There were four of us eating here for lunch. Everything we ordered was delicious! Our waitress, Missy, was friendly and prompt with refills and requests. The fish and chips and homemade tartar sauce were excellent! Hamburgers are good and fish sandwich is great too. Missy...More
