We have been here a few times. They always have about 20 beers on tap (20 ounces for $6 or $7!). We have the blackened turkey sandwich or a burger, which run $11-12. We usually go here before going to the Athletics game. It's always crowded.

I'm not a beer drinker so I can't comment on that but the food was decent for pub food. Our group decided to drop by after work, the restaurant was uncomfortably hot so we didn't stay very long. The service was good and our server was very friendly. Busy place.

Wonderful local spot. Great for beers with friends (incredible beer selection) and pretty decent pub food. Also very good for families. Our young kids can walk around outside and are never the loudest ones here! Great servers.

You can't beat the beer selection on tap any day of the week, and the atmosphere is always congenial and lively. The pub grub is fine, burgers, fish & chips, salads all good. Easy place to drop into on a whim. On game days (soccer, baseball, football) it can be very crowded. There is some outdoor seating as well, but... More

The kind of place I'd hang out a lot if I lived in the area. Lots of beers, dependable menu. The stuffed burger was very tasty and the garlic parmesan fries were even better. Good, solid choice.

We come here way too often! Great burgers and waitresses. Great place for parents with kids to go and have a beer and maybe catch a game while feeling like an adult still.

We enjoyed watching the World Series with expats from Boston. A really fun pub with good food and drink and great service.

A few friends and I went there because we were attending a nearby conference at the Claremont Hotel. I ordered the Linguine in pesto sauce (with a grilled chicken breast on top). The presentation was like a restaurant categorized as fine dining. The dish had a wonderful pesto sauce, sun dried tomatoes, and shredded Parmesan cheese. I would definitely go... More
