Finally tried this neighborhood type pub/restaurant. I liked it. The interior ambience is comfortable. Too many TVs for my taste though. They distract from good conversation with the person (s) with whom one is dining. Service was very good. The zucchini fries are outstanding. I...More

The food menu is rather limited, some interesting apps and a variety of burger options. The bourbon menu is extensive. The space is quite nice.

We stopped in for a couple drinks before dinner at another location. We were very happy we did as the staff was very friendly and the whiskey list was great! The mixed drinks were very good as well! We wish we could've stayed longer!

I know they do for private events, but it's very much a pub feel so seating it's fairly quick & convenient. I hope this helps. :-)
