The food was a little more upscale than we expected for a pub (which was nice), and there were more casual offerings like burgers as well. Quick and friendly service, and a nice selection of craft beer.

Enjoyed the teriyaki kabobs on bed of rice with onions and peppers. Had a side Caesar salad which lacked any amount of dressing so did not finish. Good and friendly service.
