We always squeeze in a visit here. Heart food and a variety of food... pub food to full entrees. We ended up seated in the bar this year...great service but it was pretty loud. Always a wait but worth it. Family loves the oyster shooters.

Sorry I don't work there. You will have to call them directly to check on reservations. I would do it right away since that is a busy holiday weekend.
