The hostess seated us in a nice section upstairs - there were five of us dining together. They had an extensive selection of craft beers but the one I wanted wasn't available. The food was okay - dessert was delicious but my veggie burger was not very good. It was gummy and flavorless. I will come here again and order... More

Came here wanting to just play pool but did't realize they had good food. I wish I had eaten here with my friends instead of gilded otter. Very lax atmosphere. The bartender Ryan or Brian not sure their name but he was the only bartender that would make eye contact with me. Everyone else was walking or talking behind the... More

Very casual with a continuing influx of students from the local colleges. The seating is informal and comfortable. The staff are very friendly (as is the crowd) and the food properly prepared, hot food serve hot and sold dishes served cold. Portions are almost perfect (depending on how hungry you are).

Dirty, dingy and a throwback to the old pub days with beers, smokes, fish and chips but if thats what you're expecting, it won't dissapoint. Only two house beers on tap but they were excellent, a sour and an IPA. They retain the largest beer menu I've ever seen, and have very good tacos and burgers to boot. Mens room... More

This place is a bit eclectic, but that shouldn't be a surprise given it's located in a college town. It's a fun place though, with a great atmosphere, a wide selection of beers and some decent pub food. You can even play some pool if you want. All in all, a positive experience.

The food and service was good but the food took too long to come out waited almost 45 minutes and we ordered wraps and burgers.

Julia, our server, was fantastic! She was friendly, attentive and one of the best anywhere, even in comparison to high-class, expensive restaurants. That said, the food was also top notch. My friend had the burrito and I had chicken Napoleon. The burrito was HUGE, and my friend said one of the best he's had. I had them tweak my chicken... More

Located right off of the main drag, hear the antique village, we came here for dinner around 5 pm on a Saturday night, and the place was packed already. Lots of food variety here! Place has a long bar. We were lucky enough to get window seating. Food is served with large portions and very tasty. Lots of unique items... More

Food is very good. Service is slow but if you're not in a hurry it's no big deal. They have lots of beer! Parking can be a real pain but the food is worth it.
