Visited here with a couple of girlfriends and we all loved it. The hummus was great, as was my club. Everything on the menu looked delicious and it was all very reasonably priced.

Stop by and enjoy a drink and food here. The decor is all around sports with a good selection of tvs as well. We just got the cheese fries and they were delicious. Service was good at the bar. Everyone's food that was coming out looked great and I heard nothing but good things from the people around us. If... More

It was a chilly day and I wanted soup. Upon seeing the Copper Penny I knew this was the place for me. The staff was friendly and efficient. I ordered the smoked tomato soup ( my husband got French onion) with the grown up grilled cheese sandwich. The food was exactly what I was craving and I enjoyed every bite... More

Easy walking distance downtown very busy at lunch time. A good place for lunch with friends with pub grub type menu. Nothing was outstanding but if you are looking for good food and easy atmosphere it's a nice place.

Went on a Saturday afternoon. There was a wait for a seat for the dining area but we found a couple seats at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and gave us a couple of samples of draft brews, PLENTY to choose from. Fish and chips were excellent. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed!

We stopped in on a Sunday night for dinner wanting to try something different than our usual. It was packed but we were seated right away. It was a football night so naturally it was quite loud. The prices were very reasonable in my opinion. The food was delicious and came pretty quickly for how busy it was. I will... More

Went to watch a non-local NFL game and they switched one of the TVs for us. I got their particular take on a Ruben sandwich; interesting and good but I'll stick with regular Rubens in the future. Good beer choices.
