The closest place to a real"cheers" bar you will ever find. Thr food is decent and the drinks are reasonable. Staff is wonderful and make you feel at home. Only downside is parking...the lot is small.

Only stopped in for drinks with coworkers but the service was very good and the beer was nice and cold. The place was packed and parking limited but definitely worth a visit.

This place was just right, busy and fun. Great service in a real pub manner. Beer was cold, food was tasty. The nacho platter could make a meal, my friend loved the shepherd's pie.
