Decor is fabulous -- the look of a turn of the (20th) century public house, exposed brick, lots of wood, rustic,  old political posters and cartoons, artifacts and historical images abound.  The specter of Teddy Roosevelt looms large.  Well he's the favorite son of this town, and rightly so.  The huge chalkboard listing of available ... read more

This place was amazing! From the food to the service to the atmosphere! Our waiter, Tommy, joked with us and was top notch. The po' boy oyster sandwich was exceptional. Afterward we had coffee and JJ, the manager, chatted with us. Everyone shook our hands as we left.

What a special place. It was raining out so we popped in to have lunch. The grilled lobster was amazing. The little neck steamed clams excellent. Fresh corn in June was sweet and crisp. What a great find.

Their oysters were fresh, but they had sands in some of the oysters. The shells of the oysters also came to the dish with small rocks. Other items on the menu don't seem to be very attractive or special.

The oysters were great but way over-priced, the steak was good but definitely not the rare/medium rare that I ordered. Service was great!

They also had a great craft b ... read more

This place is great. First off, the host was awesome but we think he was probably the owner but really we have no clue. Regardless, he was great. Then we ordered the "Pretz-zilla" and it was exactly the size you'd expect a Godzilla-sized Pretzel to be.

Great ambiance. Diverse selection of local craft draft beer. Older crowd which is a relief from 'Hipster Haven' and 'Pretentiousville'. Family friendly, especially early.

Very nice people from Host to waitress to busboy, but I think our food got lost cuz we waited over an hour for our entrees. Big ass pretzel good but WAY OVERPRICED and sauces just ok.
