Plenty of beers on the menu but the Guinness was below average. I don't think they do the three quarter pour or the lines haven't been cleaned in ages. Food is good but they charge you extra for pickles. Pub sandwiches usually come with pickles, oh well.

How wonderful to find a place you can go and have a pizza for half price on Wednesday Nights with two beverages. Not only the pizza was a deal, but they also had drink specials for $3.00 on the same night. How wonderful for everyone! The pizza and drinks were very good too! Every night they have a different special... More

lively atmosphere, great specials on both food and drink every night of the week (unless fish fry isn't your deal - then skip Fridays). reasonable prices. Great burgers - especially on Mondays and Saturdays. Bar area looks fun and lively - but restaurant area with food is busy as well. Great wait staff

The restaurant is located in a shopping center so there is ample parking. They have a good draft selection and some really good daily specials.

I have been here a few times and the bartenders are the best. They are so friendly and they make you feel at home. The beer selection is awesome. You can't beat their crazy good prices on drinks. The food has been good too. I will be coming back again.

We have been here several times. We really like their pizza. Each day has a different special. Great $1 burgers on Mondays. Specials on chicken wings, pizza, chicken tenders and various drinks throughout the week. Highly recommend.

If you like to watch sports and drink beer this is your place. Food is good for a sports bar. Remember it is a bar and can be noisy. They have high top tables and booths.
