  • An interesting place.
  • Order the "Starving Artist" -- it's a rotating beer, often a very good one, and only $2.50! Total deal.
  • Lovely microbrew list and huge salads. Should've gotten the seared tuna, but got the smoked turkey instead. It was deli meat style...meh. TMT is absolutely on my bar rotation now.
  • My favorite watering hole. All the bartenders are fantastic.
  • Ask for J.B. he is a great bartender. Super friendly and they have great pub food. -Tracey Bloom, Top Chef
  • Trivia on Tuesdays at 7:30, Board games (with all the pieces) every night!
  • The BBQ Tacos are a hit. They are very large and worth the $7. Also try the Potato Spuds to complete the meal. If you are into Science or Enlightenment this is your favorite pub.
  • The Bourbon Fried Chicken is delicious, flavorful, and served with some fantastic mashed sweet potatoes. Get it!
  • Time to update the televisions...
  • Lots of veg options. You have to get a side of their fries!!! The TLT was yums. Beans and rice kinda spicy!
  • Excellent food, it's our neighborhood pub. Reminds me of the places my dad used to take me to. Low key, darts, board games. They stress American brews and liquors.
  • I like thatthe chicken salad is both light & dark meat.
  • Get a guacamole and cheddar veggie burger
  • The mango jerk veggie burger is delightful.
  • Great bar with fun and friendly staff!
  • Not the service on Friday night...or at least my Friday. The food was rushed and under cooked. The veg burger had NO TOPPINGS. The sauted kale was exactly that- no seasonings whatsoever just
  • Delicious vegetarian options as well as more traditional pub fare. Outstanding service, kitschy/cool vibe, and free parking in attached lot. Highly recommended.
  • Great BLT and veggie plate
  • Nice beer selection! Great fried green tomato sandwich!
  • Hush puppies and the potato rounds with toppings (sour cream, bacon, blah blah) are amazing. Good beer selection. Good service. And a fun atmosphere.
