Very easy on and off the highway to find this place. Multi levels, multiple stuff going on, pool tables, comedy club,lots of flat screens showing sports, lots of patrons having a good time, lots of tasty stuff on the menu, and also lots of pub brewed choices for beer. We went for a bite and a brew on a friday night, they had a duo playing some so so soft classic rock kind of stuff (fairly cheesy and too loud, but easy to get away from cuz, this place is so big and has so many differant areas to go hang out in.) Our waiter was friendly and prompt. Beer sampled (Dexter Gordon, IPA, brown ale) seemed fresh and were tasty, if not amazing. Crowd seemed on the younger side, this is a college town to a certain extent. Fun place, interesting building, worth a visit if in town or just passing through (DONT DRINK AND DRIVE)

The atmosphere here is awesome. Beautiful woodwork and aesthetics throughout. I love the four tiered open stairway eating layout. My wife and I ate in the small two seater tables on the second tier overlooking the city. Quite a nice view.

Service was fast and friendly, food was delivered hot. We only got burgers but they were done just right. The waffle fries were "eh", the Asian slaw was fresh and tasty. Beer selections were excellent. We arrived at 5:30 on a Saturday evening, so it certainly was getting busy, but not quite peak dinner time. I'd like to go back just slightly later to see how service holds up during the real swing time.

In the end I'd have to say it well worth going, and I'm certainly hoping to go back soon.
