This is a very small bar and grill, but they have great service and good food. It is family friendly and you can expand the menu by getting pizza from Paizanos across the street.

I've eaten here several times and have always enjoyed it. This Pub is a small, intimate environment. There are not a lot of tables. But, there is also a bar area for seating. Relatively quiet for the size of the space. I can't say that...More
