Known for their fish and chips, they also have great salads, sandwiches, and entrees. I love that you can order the Fish Dinner, fried, baked, or blackened, and you can substitute any other side for the fries. My favorite side is the grilled veggie kabob! As much as I love the crispy, flaky, delicious, fried fish, its nice to have... More

Bartenders are friendly and beer selection is good. The food is average and I'd skip the kraut balls if I were you.

We were celebrating friend's anniversary, so we decided to try this pub - it was great! The food was marvelous and the atmosphere was just as good! Our party enjoyed it very much and will go again. It's worth the while to visit. Chicken tenders and fish were extremely good. Give it a try.

Enjoyed a quiet dinner by myself at the bar. Great draft selection and balanced service - good and not overwhelming. If you stop here you must get this fish and chips.

Go early because they get busy by 6:00. Service is good also. I have had hamburgers as well and they were great too. The prices are not high and their selections are good if you want something besides mussels and hamburgers.

I've been here several times. The food is always prepared consistently well. They offer a great variety and the food is always good. We have not had a bad meal. Nice bar for beer and drinks if you want bar service. Kid friendly too.

We went here for the first time on a Sunday evening after a stellar recommendation from family. Seems to be a popular spot, but we were quickly seated at a nicely sized table for 4 (there's a bar, and also tables or booths, all with adequate room for food & drink). All three of us got the Fish and Chips,... More

Great food, prices, and atmosphere. We went for a family dinner yesterday. They had a great selection of beers on tap. I had a blue moon and an angry orchard. (Yummy!) We liked the black bean dip with chips and thick cut onion rings appetizers. The fish and chips was unlimited, fresh, and very good. Everyone loved the fries too.... More
