Waiting for 10 minutes for waitress to visit our table! Once ordered it took 40 minutes for our sandwiches to arrive. The waitress dropped the FF off my friends plate as she approached the table. Accidents happen. But it took 10 minutes to bring him...More

It's Friday, I'm at the beach, traditionally fish 'n chips day so I stopped by here for lunch. I'm very familiar with Hennessey's and enjoy their ambience for an evening drink. I wasn't anticipating gourmet food ... It's a pub after all. They totally lived...More

The proprietors of This establishment should be ashamed of themselves. There is absolutely NOTHING funny about their idea to offer a free drink card resembling a green card, in exchange for climbing a wall, on 5 de mayo. This blatant act of racism is appalling...More

For a "pub" this place does an outstanding job of providing great service and really solid food (especially breakfast). My most common experience is breakfast, but I have eaten lunch and dinner there too. $5 greyhounds and bloody marys on the weekends are outstanding.

Good sandwich and solid salad. Good selection of beers and numerous happy hour specials. Service ok, but not great. Others in the group were more impressed. (And why is it with the fascination with Chive tv?)

Turkey dinner was cold. Coleslaw with the ribs had a funny taste like it was bad but nothing else was offered when I advised the waitress about it. Service was great.

They have a good selection of small plates for $5 for happy hour. The ahi tacos are very good. Good drink deals too, including $5 Moscow Mule. The patio is being renovated right now, and sitting outside is the best. But it's nice enough inside.

Nice location and a great pub, but the food is just so so. Keep trying it, but it isn't anything to rave about. Service is always friendly.
