Started with crab cake appetizer which was very good. Not something out of a box. Then I had a Cobb salad which was all fresh greens and a nice portion as well. It came with chicken and your choc of dressing which tasted house made to me. The bartender was very efficient and polite. Will be back

After a terrific exhibit of Matilda Browne at the Francis Griswold Museum, we had a late lunch at Penny Lane. We both ordered the special -- lightly breaded cod over spinach and fingerling potatoes in a lemon-butter sauce. It was outstanding -- all the tastes blended yet were distinct. We often fix fish over spinach but the addition of fingerling... More

We have frequented the pub numerous times and the food and service have always been top notch. But this time we were disappointed with the service. We were seated at a booth for 6 but there was only 2 of us. I was concerned that we might be taking up space for a large party should one come in. But... More

This restaurant not only had pub food like wings, burgers, and beer but they had ribs, seafood dishes, and pasta dishes among others. I got the ribs and my wife got a salad. Both were good! The chocolate hip cookie pie was great!

The French Onion soup was among the best I've ever had - very savory - and on this cold winter night absolutely hit the spot!!! I was very pleased with how incredibly juicy and tender the Bison Burger was as well!!! The wait staff was prompt and very attentive as well (thank you Maddy!!) Top Notch

Enjoyed a delicious dinner with my BFF. He had the short rib w/cavatelli special, his rating was 4 out of 5 stars. I was in the mood for a turkey club. It is huge, ate 1/4 & shared the rest with my bff for lunch the next day. I also had the sweet potato fries with chipotle aioli, yummy, loved... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. Choose either the downstairs pub atmosphere or the upstairs dining room. Wonderful salads, sandwiches and entrees! The best fried onion rings and great Reuben sandwiches. Don't forget the specials menu also!
