Started off with perogies, then a Philly steak sandwich with a side of onion rings. Can I say Delicious? Service was great, did not take long for food to come out. Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

I would go back. The building was cool, had a large mall like store attached to it. We didn't eat, but our neighbors food looked good enough. I was curious to know where the kitchen was though, it wasn't obvious sitting at the bar.

We stopped here before my son's hockey game at Wesbanco Arena. It's very conveniently located near the arena. I ordered the pretzel sticks as an appetizer and they were good. For my dinner I ordered crab cakes and they were just ok. Too much breading for my liking and no sauce which made them very dry. The rice that came... More

There are not a ton of pubs in town so I felt lucky to locate this one. The entrance is on the corner which was a little confusing but the locals outside told me that it happens all the time. I went late for drinks. The crowd was young/middle aged and there was a large wedding party there the night... More

The restaurant has a very good beer selection which included several micro brewery beers as well as the national brands. The food was good but not great. The menu seemed pretty good overall. The restaurant itself is in a building that seems to have converted from some past industrial use. It was very nice inside. Service was good and friendly.... More

In from out of town for the hockey game at Wesbanco Arena. Met friends here for a pregame dinner. There was 6 of us. It was easy to park at the arena and walk over just a block. So, very convenient location if you are going to the arena. Service was prompt and the food was ok, nothing bad and... More

Been to this place a few times in the last few years and it never is disappointing. Great place just across the street from the Wesbanco Arena in downtown. Food is good, atmosphere is good and Fridays the usually have a live band which makes this place even better. Recommended indeed!
