Comfortable seats at the bar. Good TV's for watching a game. We did not try the food, so cannot comment on that. Overall an enjoyable experience and I would... More

We had dinner here during a recent visit to Colgate University. It is very much a local tavern, and while the menu is fairly basic, it is extensive and I had high hopes. The food we got was average at best. In addition, the service was poor. When I pointed out that I had ordered their "homemade potato chips" rather... More

Was looking for a good burger and it was great. I had a black bean burger and my date had a beef burger. Both were absolutely delicious. We shared the appetizer plater as well and although full of calories, was also really good. The service was quick and friendly and even changed to a basketball game we wanted to watch.... More

We were in town for a football camp at Colgate University and after sitting out in the hot sun for 4 hours, we were ready for air conditioning and some good food. We ordered the sampler appetizer platter, the best part of that was the potato skins and the spicy sauce that came on the side. I ordered the philly... More

Our son who lives in Hamilton, brought us here for supper; he eats here about once a week. The menu has lots of choices, and service was fast and friendly. The dining room is fairly small, so I expect it may be crowded when the college is in session.
