Great food and service. Considering it was St. Patrick's Day we were seated fast and the waitstaff was attentive. Food - all I can say is YUM

“slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

Waited 20 minutes for 1st drinks and appetizer. Then waited 45 minutes for 2nd appetizer. This was on a Sunday afternoon. The place wasn't busy. I counted 15 empty seats from where I sat. I came in with a group that dropped at least $1000 in the place. I expect better.

Also the men's room smells of urine. There's no excuse for that. It's called Comet. Scrub the offending areas with it. Let it sit. Rinse. Smell gone. Try it.

“Good food and beer - fun venue!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2012 via mobile

We stopped here for a quick lunch and beer and ended up having more beer than planned. Really warm and fun environment. Plenty of space for large groups.

Fish and chip wedges were excellent. Average prices.

Server made honest suggestions. Would definitely return.
