the chairs are super comfy and you melt right into them. The music is nice, the patronage a good mix of individuals. We were there for lunch, the service was a bit slow, not very busy. Asked for a minute, was given closer to 10. But the food made up for the service! Had the Honey Chicken Melt, so tasty... More

The staff do not seem to be trained on how not to overserve. I have complained, but to no avail. When someone Can no longer walk, they have been overserved. The staff will just keep bringing drinks, unbelievable!!!! I finally had to file formal complaint to the liquor control board.

Haven't been to this pub in a little while so decided to go and get one of the excellent burgers, which is their Wednesday special. As before the service is still excellent, funny thing even after not being here in a few months, the server/waitress, who has been in the establishment for a while now, still remembered the salad dressings...

We ordered the hamburgers, which were tasty, but just typical hamburgers. They were on special with a great price. Our friend ordered the 1/2 price chicken wings. You could order any amount you wanted, and he ordered 15. He was only able to eat eight of them and when he asked for a box was told that they couldn't give... More

Found nothing special here - good variety on the menu - portions were large and flavorful. Found the steak sandwich had a large piece of meat but considerable grizzle making it not a great choice. As pubs go we do not normally eat at them and would probably not go back although the service was good.

The portions are large and we often ask for a doggy bag! As an old couple, we are often tempted to ask to share an order. The food is excellent and their Caesar salad one of the best around. The service is good and the waitresses friendly.

We come there often and there are usually four to eight of us. We order food and beverages. This time one of us could not eat all of "specials" so we asked to take them home. We do know that you can not order specials to take home but the person could not eat them all. We got to take... More

Dark dated pub, Personable server, food was nothing to bring us back or recommend. Taco shells for fish tacos were stale- not sure if it was a one off - but I won't rush back

We've been to the Landlubber Pub a few times, and every time has been just excellent. The nights with live music or games are fun, but their food really makes you want to come back for more!
