Went at happy hour before a City Islanders game. The food was excellent. Had fries with shredded beef on them, very good. Also had pizza. Service was very good as well

100 craft beers and ciders on tap, with knowledgeable waitstaff who can recommend selections based on what you like. The food is upscale pub food; quite good and moderately priced.

I enjoyed a delectable dinner here with my girlfriend last month. Our waitress gave us a number of recommendations and we enjoyed them all. The food was light, flavorful and the company was even better. I'll be back :)
