Exposed brick, skylights, leather, and wood are just some of the esthetics that caught my eye when I walked in. Their menu is solid and the portions are generous but reader be warned, there is smoking indoors so if that's a deal breaker you might not be happy here. I enjoyed Icelandic beer and bourbon pulled pork nachos while watching... More

Stopped in at 11:45am to get a burger because of the good things we've heard. However, upon entering we were told that no person under 21 was allowed due to a City Ordinance for smoking establishments. (We had our 13yr old with us.) At first, I figured it was due to it serving alcohol but was told it was a... More

Large selection of interesting beer, very good food, tasty, not greasy. Not your usual burgers, fresh flavored buns, thin and crispy fries. Several aioli dipping sauces, fresh salad dressings. The whole menu is a win win. There are no bad choices. Friendly staff, great service. You can spend several hours with friends enjoying cocktails, fine beers, and great food.

Was looking at place down the street, but it was packed, so it was a little late, so this place looked interesting. Walked in and you could just smell the stale smoke. I get a seat at the bar and I thought I was going to have to walk out as not only the bartender, but a few servers walked... More

I always seem to have a great and calm night out when I go here. The food and drinks a little pricier than Id like but the poutine is worth it. Wasn't as big of a fan of the chicken fla tbread I got.

We came here to parch out thirst. I tried the Double 0 seven drink. I was not impressed. Not to mention that the waiter kept forgetting my drink orders. We did not have any food but the atmosphere is neat so it's worth the trip.

Looks like a bar from the outside but it offers much more than just pub food. Monte Christo lolly pops were anazing.

This place has some great items on the menu but the last time we went, the bar was so smokey smelling that we didn't enjoy the food. If you are ok with a smoking while you eat bar atmosphere, you will enjoy the food, otherwise, be warned.

Food was excellent and they put some unique combinations to flavor the sandwiches and burgers. Flatbread was good. The bacon jam and thick slice of melted brie on my burger were excellent. Service needs some improvement, but food makes it worth the visit.

One of Denton's oldest historic buildings serving up great food and spirits til 2am everyday. Kitchen is open everyday until midnight serving up above par pub grub with amazing burgers, sandwiches, salads, flatbreads,munchies and foot long hot dogs. Casual but sophisticated. A great place to meet with co-workers or large groups. Free darts and Wii entertainment system. Newly renovated and re-opened in February 2013 with new menu and hand selected craft beers on tap.
