Never disappointed here at this serious step up from "bar food". Convenient location and warm setting makes one feel comfortable. Menu features A wide range of delicious entrees and sandwiches. Had the Fish and Chips with a side of creamy and fresh slaw. The Potato Chips are homemade and crispy. My wife had the Steak and Ale Pie with a... More

I wrote a glowing review about BOP’s liver and onions in Feb. 2016. I reordered them today for lunch and that part of the meal was wonderful. However, there was a peculiar flavor that I initially was suspecting was vinegar in the gravy. I didn’t say anything to our server, Erica, who did a splendid job throughout our entire lunch....

Everything is excellent at the British Open Pub. Food choices are very good, prices are too. Employees are friendly and knowledgeable about the wide variety of beer, whiskey and other drinks as well as the food. We have made it our "go to" place. And they remember your name!

My wife and I stopped at this restaurant for lunch. We were passing through and decided to eat here. We sat at the bar and were greeted by our friendly bartender Shannon. He reccomended a great beer (TroisPistoles) for me, and my wife had a Riesling. We ordered their Veal Schnitzel, and Chicken and Broccoli Pastie dish. Both were very... More

The old location was fine, but apparently too small for their clientele. This new building is definitely English décor, well decorated, and spacious. The noise levels were great for conversing with your dinner mates. Their menu features traditional English dishes like cottage pie, bangers and mash, etc. Our group went there for their fish and chips and all were well... More

This restaurant is close to I-75 and it is good. We had s doctor appointment nearby so we had lunch there and they had a special on their angus burger. I asked for it medium well but got a medium rare, so I sent it back and it was a little better but not what I wanted. So I ate... More

Hubby and I heard good things about this restaurant and decided to try it. Hubby ordered the Fish and Chips, which was very oily. One of the managers came over to ask how dinner was and he showed her how oily it was. She said it's not usually that way (?). She would tell the cook. Never offered to bring... More
