We've been here a handful of times, and half our family always gets the Bayou Mac and Cheese with the sausage and chicken. However, this last time, a lot of it was inedible due to the chicken. There were all kinds of big chunks of dark meat with fat and gristle still attached. It was almost all dark meat. One... More

Had a fantastic evening going - celebrating a Birthday. Everything was great - food, drinks, desserts. Our group of eight was enjoying everything until we asked for the check. We decided to pay the bill with a credit card and everyone agreed to throw in for the tip in cash. I signed the credit card receipt and drew a line... More

Met up with some out of town friends for lunch. Service was great, portions were huge, quality of food was better than most pubs and sport bars. My only complaint is that parking spaces were limited.

Lunch. Had the Ruben. Taste OK, but really lacking in ingredients. Especially the meat. Very little. Hamburger was pretty lame also. Good daily specials. Service was OK. Very slow time of day. Should have ate at the bar.

I went to this pub today and I ordered a ceaser salad, to my surprise I received a bowl of lettuce with no dressing, croutons,or cheese. My friends were very happy with their fish and chips and I do admit the hospitality was great.

Stopped by this pub for some drinks and some pub food. The portions were huge - we couldn't finish them - and the quality of the food was excellent. The selection of beer was incredible and we had fun trying different ones. It was a little pricey, but well worth it nonetheless. The staff was incredible attentive and kind without... More

Was here on a weekday with a bunch of people and the wine specials were great! We had a lot of food and all of it was very good (mac-n-cheese, steamed clams, pasta, burgers - all good). Only down side is it is very loud - 6 of us at a small table and we could barely hear each other.... More

This pub is awesome! It has a great environment and good prices. There is a lot of beers on tap. The food is awesome I went with the burger and it was really good. I would recommend to others for sure.

In order of importance to me here is the on-tap beer list that runs the gamut. I always find something interesting to try and enjoy. The service is above average for a place like this. I prefer to sit in the smaller (slightly quieter) bar area to the right as you walk in. The food is the usual stuff for... More
