We were looking for a good meal on a Monday evening, and felt like having pub food. The stairs were a challenge for me as I was recovering from surgery, but once upstairs the room was warm and welcoming. My friend ordered sampling of locally brewed beer and I had a Chardonney. I felt like something hardy but it was... More

My wife had the fish and it was still frozen in the middle. The server Erin defended the cook by saying I watched him cook and plate it, it looked OK to me. I am terribly sorry would have been right response!!! Bad Attitude

This is a a special place. A small and fun Irish public house upstairs and quieter and larger pub on the main floor. The staff are highly professional and attentive to their customers. Live music is a regular occurrence upstairs. Never will you see a TV set but you can always find stimulating conversation with people who are typically there... More

Went there for lunch; had soup of the day, bacon wrapped scallops, and flat bread pizza. Service was excellent and the woman who waited on us was kind, generous and very helpful. Though the soup was okay the food was pretty avarage. Will not go back.

The service was average and ambiance was good. I had the 'Book-End' bacon and chicken sandwich though and I would call it a miss. The other three dining with me enjoyed their meals more but nothing memorable. This is more of a quirky watering hole with average food.

decent location with well prepared (although small serving sizes!!), service mixed and getting water refilled is a challenge

It was very busy when we were there, Homecoming weekend. The service was very good as was the food. Waitress checked back to see if everything was alright. Very impressed for such a busy, full house.

We chose this restaurant for dinner even though it works best as a pub. There were few dining tables, but many bar stools around bar-height tables. It was a rustic place but the server was engaging and helpful. The food was tasty.

We decided to try this restaurant for lunch when our first choice (Naked Crepe) down the street was too full. We like dark beers, so we asked the waitress for a recommendation of a dark beer. Well the beer that came was not dark! Later I noticed a patron getting a sample of a beer to try. I guess that's... More
