Burgers are fantastic and they have many to choose from. Also, several beers are on tap. There is non-smoking seating, but if you want to sit at the bar for the bar experience, it is the smoking area. Very friendly staff.

If you're a smoker this place is for you otherwise stay away. Bar is closed off for smoking. And as far as a true Guinness pour forget it. 16 oz pint in one shot, and not even to the rim🙁 unfriendly service is included

I generally like this place because it is very smoke friendly. Most of the restaurant is smoking. There are dart boards and pool tables and a decent selection of beer. Food is your typical pub type fare of good enough quality. But the bartender this...More
