    Recommend not going here. Food is ok, standard pub. Terrible waiter staff. Waited 20 minutes to get anything, even a beer.

    Just ignore everyone and have a good tine with dark lighting and your friends. Good bands happen on occasion. Favorite.

    Order a whiskey smash, or a new york sour - this is a bar that takes pride in its drinks.

    Try the BLT&E; bacon, lettuce, tomato with egg. Of course, all the pizzas are great too.
