Local Pub with local friendly people and staff. Comfortable place to eat, drink, or shoot pool. Good place to have a drink, catch a snack and say hello when traveling to Aberdeen.

Have been a huge fan of the establishment... But this experience was less than good. Starts with the hostess telling us that a reservation is required for Friday (this is a dive bar... Reservation, really?!). Then the door opening and closing making the restaurant feel like a igloo... That made it great. But, finally and most importantly... The food. Ordered the A-Bomb medium. Was probably the worse cooked burger I've ever had. The meat was a hockey puck and the grilled cheese had a slice of American stuck between two pieces of bread. Wow. Very disappointing. There are better places... Try somewhere else. :(

Friends have recommended the Bushmill Inn so we tried the restaurant for the first time. The interior decor of the Inn and Bar is as expected; plain, numerous wall mounted TVs, a bar area and a dining area. We arrived after the lunch hour and selected the table we wanted. Service was prompt and very friendly by Nicki. Our order consisted of a delicious cheese steak sub with provolone cheese and fried onions. Our other order was the Italian sub also with provolone cheese and quite tasty. A nice variety of quality meats inside. The accompanying French Fries were particularly good; hot and remarkably flavorful. Each order came with a crisp dill pickle The portions are quite large (for our quantity of intake) so we were able to have a take-away for later. Prices are reasonable and we would not hesitate to return.

Had lunch here today but was not very impressed. First don’t loose sight of the fact that this is a bar, and it has a bar environment. The place is loud with music playing and crude language from the bar patrons setting the mood. The service was very slow and the waitress not very friendly. I understand she was busy but she wasn’t very good at her job. The person who stepped in to finally help was much better. The highlight of the meal was the crab ball appetizer. From there everything else was just ok with the exception of the cold French fries that came with the meal. Fresh cut fries that had the potential to be so much more came out cold and limp. Didn’t try any desserts but they looked good. Sorry to say I doubt that I will go back
