Very average food, nothing special. Menu is fairly limited. Prices are pretty high considering the food they have to offer. Not a top recommendation for Oak Harbor or Whidbey. Decently family friendly. Casual atmosphere.

They've been open since Sept. 2016. Food was great. You get to custom order your burger. Lots of good pub fare. You can come here and sit at or in the bar area or at one of the other more family style seating areas. The service was fantastic on a Friday night. They have a billiards and game area. Stage area for live music a couple times a month.
It's great to have another really good option in Oak Harbor.
Great place to bring a date, a group of friends, the family, or out of towns guests.

This place has great possibilities and I want it to succeed because Oak Harbor needs a place like this. It has been open for a couple months and I have visited three times. The place is decorated well and the burgers I have had there are good. They have a good beer selection on the menu. Overall, we like the menu and atmosphere with many TV's for games. They also have happy hour each day until 6:00 and I recommend taking advantage of it because prices are on the high side.

The problem is that there are a few things really hurting this place. First, the service can be very inconsistent and the last time we were there it was bad. They seem to often be out of many of the drinks on the menu including multiple beers and the house wine. Paper menus are spilled on and things they are out of are just crossed out with a marker. Kind of gross and not classy. How about printing out 50 copies of an updated menu each week? It would cost 10 bucks or less to do that. Also, they need either new employees or better training. When we went in it was not busy and we sat for 15 minutes before I went up and asked how we can get menus and order something.

I hope they can address these issues because the place has great possibilities.
