Food was good- nothing out of the ordinary, but good. Oysters were excellent. Service was pretty good, but not a wow. If you want simple pub food with a casual relaxed atmosphere this place is just fine.

The Brown Lantern has one of my favorite trivia nights in town (mainly free drinks as the prize for winning trivia rounds), with just the right ambience in the pub itself. Laid-back and fun to hang out in, they also have delicious habi-tots and chili,...More

We stopped in here for lunch one day with our toddler. We are not generally picky people and are used to greasy spoons and pub fare with our kid. This place was... not the best. For starters, there was a huge spider, like an inch...More
