Cheers: The best Reuben sandwich in town. Open faced original and turkey were slathered with mounds of succelent meat, covered with oozing cheese, and finished off with about a half pound of sauerkraut. The sammy is seriously, two meals in one. Good selection of brews, usual NY and New England suspects. Plan your visit to coincide with the bands that play on most weekends/weekdays to avoid any conversation moments. Interior is nice enough to call the place nice, maybe a tad classy. You could easily impress a date or your mom with this place. "Why, George, this place is really neat. I love the contrasting paint scheme and the adornments." There is a coed bathroom

Jeers: Half of our food could have fed six homeless dudes for the day. Cut down on the calories, I felt absolutly gross after polishing off my sammy. Then again, noone twisted my arm to do it.

This is for the Bull & Bear Roadhouse, which is the 2nd location out by Carrier Circle. Not impressed. No beer list is posted, our waitress said it was "in her head". Selection was so-so, and dominated by macro beers. The service overall was pretty bad, considering it was Saturday about 30 minutes after opening and there was maybe 6 people in the place. Food was decent. If you're looking for mediocrity, this is your place.

I was on my way from J Ryans to Dino and since I have never been here before I decided to stop in.My first impression was all of the wood, which I like, comfortable atmosphere.Next impression was the place felt dirty inside it just had that not cleaned on a regular basis feel to it. I took the only empty seat,lunch time, at the bar next to an arrogant man reading the Yale law review and ordered a pint.They do have a decent beer selection mixed between locals and imports. As for food as I said I was on the way to Dino but almost everyone at the bar was eating and it looked good. There was a man down the bar a way eating the Reuben and as the previous reviewer said it is huge, possibly the biggest I have ever seen. Would I stop again, yes I want that Reuben!!
