Was in town visiting a friend and we came here to eat and grab a few drinks. Great atmosphere and the live band was great too. The food was really good, my wife's shepherd pie was tasty and my burger was good too. Tried the potato skin appetizer that came with corned beef vice bacon and that was really good as well. Looking forward to visiting this place again.

Rainy afternoon visit in Hamden with family. As one is baby sat outside despite dampness. Umbrellas were fine, food ok. Service pleasant (especially as she had to brave the rain). Only chicken wings and dessert along with beer (good selection). Good vibe but more a hangout than a meal.

This is one of those cozy local favorites that is so good you almost don’t want to tell people about it.The staff are all friendly, the food has been perfect every time I’ve visited, and the atmosphere is homey and comfortable.Food wise I’ve gotten a burger on three different visits and always enjoyed. I’ve also had the nachos which are huge, and the ribs which are slide-off-the-bone perfection.
