A friend of mine recommended the place to me for the burger. A nice and juicy piece of meat with well seasoned fries. They also have a nice beer list.

A group of us tried the mussels, cheese sand whiches and shared a great chocolate desert. Excellent selection of draft biers (some affordable and at least one not so much). Enjoyed recommendations and great service from Amy.

Stumbled upon this restaurant while shopping at the Italian Market. It has lots of vegetarian options. The server was friendly and helpful. A little dark inside, but fairly quiet at lunch. Will be back soon.

Terrific Angus burgers, lamb burgers, and very good meatloaf sandwiches with old bay fries really made a nice get together. Draft beer was a little pricey at usually $6 a glass.

Even in a crowded and evidently popular with the locals pub the service was very attentive and quick. The Grilled Cheese Sandwich and the Chicken Fried Chicken are highly recommended. Will make this a go-to spot anytime we're in town.
