Had a good meal. Service was nice. Atmosphere is like your typical bar. There's 1 pool table in the back. Good value.

When you tire of the tourist scene, pop into the Keyhole. Great bar food and atmosphere at a reasonable price. It's popular for a reason, so be patient with the busy staff. Drinks were a tad weak.

We loved it so much we went back for dinner. Nothing special on the menu but the food is excellently prepared and the staff is very efficient. The french fries are worth dying over too. Yummy!
