If you like British pubs and burgers than this is the place for you. Gourmet burgers with lots of toppings and of course fries. Generous portions too. Full service bar also. Not really for children because it is a Pub.

I went here because the 1/2 lb burger shown in a picture outside looked good, and I was in a hurry. I should have gone to my favorite, Clyde's down a few blocks. First, the server was very nice, but the fires are $4.00 extra,...More

Variety of burger meats (cow, buffalo, bison, turkey, etc.) and food preparation was noteworthy. Waiter was attentive and kind. However, the music was deafening, the bathroom was messy, and the entire place seemed to be unkept. I expected more since it was a restaurant that...More
