I'm amazed about Houdini's Risoto... apple and bacon, what's was that?! Just great!! Also a good place to try different types of craft beers... mine didn't even look like beer, but tasted awesome!!

The restaurant was slow during lunch before the big NYE reservations. Service was great and our server/bartender was very nice. The food was another story. We had the pub chips which were nicely seasoned and crispy but we also got the truffle mac and cheese and it was terrible. Tasted like a mixture of heavy cream and cheap truffle oil... More

Amazing selection of beer and the bloody mary one of the best I've ever had! However, the beverage prices were definitely on the high side. Fish tacos and mac n cheese were amazing! Panini was just average. Service was excellent! Overall, a great place that I would visit again!

This place was recommended by our B&B's host. I had the fish tacos & spotted cow (of course) & my husband had risotto. He said his was okay, my meal was excellent! Bartender was kind & attentive; the kitchen Mgr relaxed after his shift (& shoveling), & he was very friendly too.

Great potstickers and paninis and cold beer! The mac and cheese was not my favorite They had a live band that was pretty good it was loud when they were there but great place and great food pretty low key.

The clan chowder was great. Enjoyed the fish tacos. My husband had the mahi mahi special that he really enjoyed. We called ahead and were told there was no wait but when we arrived they told us it would be over an hour. We ended up eating at the bar. Surprised the bartenders weren't more familiar with the tap beers... More

After reading the reviews, I had some high hopes of this place. The waitress was wonderful, but the food was just ok. The pub chips were great, although it's a pretty hard dish to mess up. I got the Wisconsin Panini and mac n cheese and it was good, but nothing special. The ambiance was ok, I expected more as... More
