I ate at this establishment on a Saturday night and it was PACKED. We were told about an hour wait for a table and the actual wait was probably just under that. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and there was a good mix of ages among the patrons.

While waiting for your table you could enjoy a beer while sitting on a leather couch or barber chairs. The chalkboard beer list included a little over 30 beers on tap, from the better-known Stella Artois and Guinness to the more elusive selections, including three "Eli's" brews. New England breweries such as Magic Hat and Hooker were also well represented on the beer list. However, no prices of the beers on tap or in the bottle were listed. Also, there was no list of beers available in the bottle.

Moderately loud music was played (a lot of '80s!) which could make conversation difficult. The food was very good but not "out of this world".... However, the onion rings deserve HIGH HONORABLE MENTIONS! The waitress was friendly and attentive but didn't have a superior knowledge of the beer selection at the establishment.

The lighting was a dull red, mostly from the multitude of neon signs about the place. This wasn't entirely conducive to doing beer reviews - hard to discern the color of your beer!

Overall, this was a fun place to be and great for a Saturday night outing. I will go again!

Solid tap list that changes daily. Good food, neat environment. Only thing lacking was stickers. I wanted to buy and they didn't have any left.

Busy and small, but a cool vibe and overall look.

Great selection of craft beer - over 20 taps and a cask option - and very high quality, to boot. Lots of great local and regional options.

I didn't try the food, but the selection looked solid - burgers, nachos, sandwiches, pub food.

Prices on the food were reasonable; beer prices were fair.

I would definitely swing by this place routinely if I lived in the area.
