The decor is great. The Presidential theme is thorough, but not overdone. There's plenty of little tidbits that make it a great place, like the President's Day celebrations, or Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight," and more.

Met here at Dead Presidents Saturday night with a bunch Of Irish friends. There was a good crowd. Prices especially for appetizers and drinks were very reasonable. Four of us had a good time for $75 which included the tip!

We stopped in for lunch. The decor was neat and the staff friendly. The food was ok but had relatively large portions.

We had delicious scallops here! The on tap beer selection was pretty small, but we found something we liked. Servers gave helpful recommendations. It was kind of loud, but it is a bar, so to be expected. Nice booths to block some of the noise.

The place is decorated in great history photos. Had braised short rib and was cooked well and the mashed potatoes were well made. Bartender appeared to be covering the tables and was on top of getting us what we needed.
