Good cocktails, good food, laid back atmosphere and excellent customer service. I enjoyed the catfish plate and it was good. I mean expectation was met. The place was not noisy nor crowded. Definitely will be going back.

Popular pub & grill just west of Overton Square. Stopped in for a couple drinks and to listen to the band for a bit. I say a bit, because music does not start until 1030.....so, one set for us. Very diverse age-range of customers (20-70's).....and ethnicity.....but, everyone plays "nice"! Typical pub grub.....not fine dining, but tasty and gets the job... More

... or at least we hope. We quickly discovered the reason the monkey is blue is because he is sad he is stuck there. Not sure when this menu was posted, but the items on it were not on our menu. Went for lunch at 12:30 and the only non breakfast item was a cheeseburger. First sat in the sunroom,... More

Lots of parking available behind the building, comfortable bar with lots of tables, was not busy when I was there so sandwich was served fast. Waite staff very welcoming. Charges 50 cents for a to-go box. Smoking permitted. Food was good.

We ate there on a Saturday night. No one was there to greet and seat us. We seated ourselves and waited for a waitress so long that I went to the bar and got our menus. It was so empty that it looked like a week night. Then, we ordered our food, a chicken club sandwich and their stuffed mushrooms.... More
