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!

The place is haunted, but the food is out of this world! Definitely worth a stop and the prices are ridiculously affordable. Service is fast like lightning.
