Always a great stop for me and my wife. Every beer and drink we love and the food is excellent. We enjoy the dart board and the locals are always friendly. A regular part of our personal "Pub Crawl" for 20 years.

Hey there, it's pretty awesome to know you've loved just about everything you've tried here -- both food and drinks nonetheless! I'll be seeing you again next time you make one of those pub crawls, that's for sure. Until then, Nick Planty, Owner

Granted, it's a sports bar so it's all about the sports, not the food. My boyfriend wanted to watch a hockey game so I went with him (for dinner). The food is just not that great. He's into health and the best thing he could...More

Hey there, Maribeth! I'm sorry you two couldn't find something to love on the menu while still being mindful of dietary restrictions. It's true that we're a sports bar through and through, so vegan options generally aren't our focus. That doesn't mean we can't add...More

This is a local sports bar where the locals go to and visitors are welcome. The food is always good and of course, the bar has everything you might like. Not fancy, but comfortable, and the service is friendly and efficient.

If we can give you a great place to enjoy the game, a brew, and some food then I'm happy! I hope to see you here many more times during football season, that's for sure. Until then, Nick Planty, Owner

If you're looking for a place to watch sports, have fried food and drinks, this is the place. Average place in town, but a good spot to just hang out. Open until three in the morning; the bar is a bit seedy.
