Server was awesome. Wings were outstanding and the steak burger was perfect. Great place to visit if in the city.

The service was great — but it was SOOO LOUD I literally couldn’t hear the person sitting right next to me (and we were in the back, where it was supposed to be quiet)

The menu looked great - but we left after a single glass of was jus TOO LOUD!

I have been here twice already. The first time I went it was packed but the food was good. They serve average pub food like burgers and brisket. However the second time I went It wasn't packed just yet we came right before the 1 o'clock lunch rush. Instead of ordering a burger I opted for a healthier option a chicken panini. My food came out cold and my waitress didn't even check up on us to see if we needed anything to drink or how the food was. I had to track her down just for water. Then to top it all of the sandwich didn't sit well with me. This place is average. Stick to the burgers.

For a Pub at this price point it was good. Tables in the back we're not crowded and able to hold an informal business conversation.

It’s a pub so expect pub food and pub atmosphere however it was warm friendly and welcoming. Crowd was convivial. Would go again for a relaxed easy meal and drink.
