Not the best place to eat but very nice pub atmosphere and friendly staff. Ribs and pulled pork was good. Pasta is very bad. They can't cook Italian. Basically it's a good joint to meet friends and drink and enjoy the live music and order fries and sandwiches. Dessert is good.

Pleasant staff, big menu, average eats. Crab balls - meh, no particular flavor, greasy. We had sandwiches, hot and cold, nothing special. Pork sandwich was WET, not with sauce but with the jus the pork sits in - so that means the bun was wet/soggy and the BBQ sauce was diluted, tasteless. Nice cole slaw, but that's not much to...

After working a trade show in PA we looked for someplace unique for dinner. Reviews were great so we stopped. Great menu and lots to choose from. Server was very friendly and attentive. We ordered and food was brought out quickly, fresh and hot. I had fried cod and was pleased the breading was very light. My friend is a... More

I was looking for somewhere new to eat, when I stumbled upon this little gem. We walked in and it was a very "homie" place. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. I've visited this place several times and it was just as good as the first time.

We had about 25 people and the service for a group that size was as good as I have ever seen. The wait staff was organized and efficient.The food arrived promptly and orders were correct. The food is typical of a suburban bar and grill. Everyone in our group was pleased with their meals My fish tacos were excellent!

We just visited for the first time and will definitely be back. We were greeted by an extremely friendly hostess. We had no idea what to try so our friendly waitress gave us some great suggestions. We tried a steak and spicy dip entree and the thai chicken salad---both were delicious. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Every worker we... More
