Good American pub with the usual food fare i.e. wings burgers etc. Good atmosphere and service. Nice selection of local beers.

Simply stopped in for a drink at the bar on a Friday night. The place was pretty busy, but the bartender (there was only one working at the time) was pretty quick to provide service. Decent selection of beers and a fair amount of TVs (although it looked like some weren't HD, didn't think that was possible these days). Reasonable... More

So let's not be expecting anything fancy, gastronomically! This place is fine if you use it for what it's meant to be used for; watching sports! Food is fatty and pretty gross, but it's washed won well with beers.

Not far off Michigan. They have the NFL ticket and more than likely will have your football game on. They have about 40 TVs although some are old and play games in low def. Service was fast and friendly. I recommend the Mother Hubbard's burger. The best part was that all the patrons were very friendly.

This is a great, laid back sports bar. Decent drink prices, friendly staff, and delicious food. I recommend their build your own grilled cheese on Texas toast. It is to die for! Comes with campbells tomato soup and a heaping plate of fries! Yum

We stopped into Mother Hubbard's after setting up for a trade show. We wanted to catch the Sunday NFL games and get a bite to eat. Beer was on tap and we also got a couple of John Daley's. Ordered the sampler appetizer that came with melt-in-your-mouth ribs, whole wings, poppers and o-rings. We got extra wings and a chicken... More
