Grabbed dinner here while visiting the Finger Lakes with my wife. Very friendly service, good beer selection and solid menu for pub food. I got the impression it's a local spot-everyone was very friendly.

This place was recommended by the front desk clerk at our hotel for burgers. He was RIGHT. This is a bar that serves food with a pool table right inside the door. Really a fun place. The service was just as good as the burgers....More

Walked in after reading other Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. Had Cobb and steak salads, both fresh, well made and generous portions. My steak slices were warm and good quality.
