We were there on a Sunday for lunch, but waited (with three kids) for more than an hour for our food. Our meals were great, but pub food should come out more quickly for lunch.

We went and had drinks here after visiting the penitentiary. The place has a very cool interior design. A great selection of beer and drinks. The appetizers we had were also very good.

The food was good. We had the southern pulled pork sandwich and the beef brisket sandwich and both were excellent. The view out the big firehouse doors to the street and ESP were nice. Service was great.
