We arrived about 6:15 on a Saturday and there were plenty of tables available. With the typical pub interior of hardwood floors and some exposed brick, it was a bit noisy and became noisier as the crowd grew. Our waitress was engaging and attentive and...More

New to the area. We had five choices for lunch in one block. Would not do this one again for lunch again. Uninspiring decor and so-so lunch. The service and draft beer was outstanding. It might be more interesting in the evening with a drinking...More
