Menu was extensive. Many sandwiches and burgers. Many entree chives for a full dinner. All 4 of us were happy with our choices. Good service.

We didn't catch any ghosts simply because the bloody mary's at the pub were too tasty. Next time, the plans need a little modification to accommodate the bloody deliciousness AND OTHER spirits. We'll be back!
