Knuckleheads is a small, comfortable bar/restaurant. On one side is tap room that is great for meeting friends for that after work drink. On the other is a restaurant or dining area which is perfect if you're with family or friends and are looking for something to eat. We were seated immediately and found there to be far too many...

Great tap beers available at Knuckleheads. Plenty to choose from.Light to dark to a cider beer. Cuban sandwich was ok. Pickle slices were thicker than the Ham and Pork combined. I would order something else next time.

Although my order was take out, the atmosphere was very family friendly. The waite staff was very friendly. The burgers were awesome. They were freshly prepared to order. We had to unhinge our jaws to allow the 9 Oz. burger plus toppings in. Great conversation topic, would definately recommend.

We stopped here while up in CT visiting Quinnipiac based on TA reviews. It has a bar (on one side / very loud) and a diner style restaurant on the other (low key nothing to write home about). We all ordered burgers which come with fries. I have to rave about the Brie Burger! OMG flavor and fun all on... More

I went for lunch with some friends. I left full and happy! I got one of the bacon-wrapped hot dogs and fries. Both were good. The pig wings, which my table shared, made the visit exceptional. They were excellent. It's a great concept that I can't believe I've never heard of.

Right in the center of town....parking can sometimes be tricky.Good bar food options & lots of craft beer choices if that is what you are into. Husband's burger was a bit under cooked, But my "Brooklyn" Hot dog was great. We'll probably give it another chance.....

Thank Ruthi K
