Food,service and atmosphere is excellent! The menu is diverse so there is something desirable for all. The amount of different beers, draft or bottle, is very impressive. The staff are so welcoming and the owner Paul gives so much back to the village community. A very generous man.

The reproduced English phone booth entrance suggests this will resemble an English pub, but it doesn't. It is an American sports bar, without a single British beer on tap. the fish and chips is anything but English. the fish was not beer-battered, and the chips were actually fresh potato chips, not fries, that said, the chips were excellent and burgers...

Beer selection was very good and cold. Food was disappointing. Had the beer stroganoff. Macaroni was tough and starchy and beef pieces were few and far between. Only ate half and left the rest. On the plus side the waitress was very pleasant.

Fun neighborhood pub. Great beer selection friendly staff. We prefer to do beer and apps. When I have a full meek I usually order the prime minister. It is a steak sandwich and it has been chewy more times than lean. My favorite apps are the fried breaded mozzarella and I order the chicken strips tossed in the buffalo sauce.... More

The Good Life has become our go to family restaurant. From the friendly service to the abundance of beers on tap, to the most amazing burgers, the Good Life is a family favorite. The Chicken Cordon Bleu Balls are delish and the Good Life Burger is always a pleaser!! We never come home disappointed!!

A local pub type spot - bustling bar - you can enjoy a bite to eat in the bar area or have your meal in the dining area. Well rounded menu - fresh and delicious - friendly and knowledgeable staff. Great for families or a friendly get together - never disappoints !

Atmosphere was cool, outside of the building looks cool. The beer yes, the food eh. I'd visit again to try more beers on the really long list they have. Lots of beer options & prices were okay.

I've been here a few times. The food is excellent. The tap beer is great. You can sit indoors or outdoors. The prices are reasonable.
