    Not the service on Friday night...or at least my Friday. The food was rushed and under cooked. The veg burger had NO TOPPINGS. The sautéed kale was exactly that- no seasonings whatsoever just

    Delicious vegetarian options as well as more traditional pub fare. Outstanding service, kitschy/cool vibe, and free parking in attached lot. Highly recommended.

    Hush puppies and the potato rounds with toppings (sour cream, bacon, blah blah) are amazing. Good beer selection. Good service. And a fun atmosphere.

    The BBQ Tacos are a hit. They are very large and worth the $7. Also try the Potato Spuds to complete the meal. If you are into Science or Enlightenment this is your favorite pub.

    The service might be the worst I've ever encountered. The food is good, so we kept giving it a try, but no more. We got up and walked out the past three times in a row.

    I love this place. Shelf full of games: mainly trivia, but I found Sorry and even Candyland :). Staff was attentive but not intrusive or pushy. Fabulous selection of American liquors and beers.

    The wait staff has no clue how to handle food allergies. If you have any, you really have to educate them. Otherwise, you'll tell them you have a gluten allergy & they'll still put bread on your plate

    Skip gumbo (uses broth for base instead of roux) and red beans (just canned beans? over rice). Go for drinks!

    The Bourbon Fried Chicken is delicious, flavorful, and served with some fantastic mashed sweet potatoes. Get it!

    Lovely microbrew list and huge salads. Should've gotten the seared tuna, but got the smoked turkey instead. It was deli meat style...meh. TMT is absolutely on my bar rotation now.

    My favorite watering hole. All the bartenders are fantastic.

    The owner says this offer is fake and they don't accept it. Boo hiss.

    Fried green tomato sandwich is great. Turkey ruben is also good

  • Karl S.

    Brand new menu. Amazing stuff. Try the Empanadas, the bratwurst, or the bourbon fried chicken breast! ...if they aren't sold out.

    Karl Sigler · November 3, 2011
  • Sarah A.

    Lots of veg options. You have to get a side of their fries!!! The TLT was yums. Beans and rice kinda spicy!

    An interesting place.

    Dave Kell · October 27, 2011

    Get the Gouda dip, 86 tortilla chips, sub mounds of rounds.

    Holly Simpson · October 6, 2011
  • David M R.

    Excellent food, it's our neighborhood pub. Reminds me of the places my dad used to take me to. Low key, darts, board games. They stress American brews and liquors.

  • Marc S.

    I like thatthe chicken salad is both light & dark meat.

    Marc Schultz · September 2, 2011

    Get the cilantro chicken sammich, and the potato rounds are always good, but also give some of the other sides a chance!

    Michael Wills · April 15, 2011
  • Matt K.

    Meh. This place is always so-so, but at least it's consistent.

    Waitress/Bartender was not a happy camper. Grumpy.

    Bartender really is unfriendly. Very strange...she does not want to be here, apparently.

    Mark M · March 5, 2011

    Get a guacamole and cheddar veggie burger

    Order the "Starving Artist" -- it's a rotating beer, often a very good one, and only $2.50! Total deal.
