Was excited to try this restaurant after reading the reviews, and the menu. Upon arriving, the place looks like an Irish Pub- the bartender was awesome, reminded me of someone from a movie- he was really animated and fun. Drinks are basic, no drink specials (bartender kinda laughed at me...it WAS funny that I asked). Was seated pretty much immediately, the chairs are AWESOME, they are old movie theater chairs from the Tribeca Theater. So cool. Menu LOOKS great, but everything we ordered was missing something. We got the fish cake appetizer, it was dark brown and crispy on the outside and really soft (border line mushy) on the inside, the taste was great, but I felt it needed some sort of sweet salsa on top. My hubby got the swordfish, he said it was a little dry and over cooked. I got the bison burger & string bean appetizer. The bison was OK, the fries SO good (fresh cut). The string bean app was interesting, they were sauteed in a sort of spicy-black seasoning- with 2 dipping sauces: a balsamic & pureed tomato something or another. Both were good, but again, missing something. I really felt the dish needed some sort of cream-based sauce to counteract the spiciness of the beans. Our waiter(s) was super attentive, really friendly, and the service was FAST. Would I go here again? Probably not- unless I happen to be right there when my stomach growled.

Decided to try this place based on reviews and we weren't disappointed! Felt very comfortable in this laid-back restaurant where the food is good with decent servings and the service was not rushed. We ordered the nachos and DEVOURED them. So yummy! Cobb salad good and shepherds pie yum with the HP sauce they served (my husband practically licked the dish clean!). Burger was perfect and seasoning on fries was a plus. Key Lime pie with homemade cream was a perfect cherry on top to end the night. Our waitress was attentive but not overbearing. We hung out there for a couple hours and never felt rushed. Oh and did I mention the decent price? I love finding restaurants where there are still $10 entrees on the menu. Looking forward to going back and taking friends to try their fried chicken and Mississippi mud pie!

Good food. Value prices. Very busy. Trendy clientele. They mostly serve Tex-Mex and American food, very basic type food. I had beef stew and steak quesadilla appetizers. The quesadillas were very good, better than I've made them. They give lots of food. They didn't charge for our 2nd round of drinks. I wanted to tell the waitress, but my friend doesn't make a lot of money so it was a hard decision. I tried to talk them into telling, but I figured the restaurant makes more money than my friend. So we left 20% tip instead. It's unlikely there was a 2-for-1 special as I had 2 different wines and my friend had a martini and beer. The wine descriptions were good so you could spot the sweet from the dry. Most of the crowd stuck to beer though. The furnishings seemed a bit old and worn compared to other restaurants. I would go back, and I would bring friends here too.

Went here tonight with 4 adults and 7 kids and had a great dinner. The waitress was so accomodating and there was something on the menu for everyone. Mac and Cheese was a big hit with the kids along with the Calamari. Adults loved the salmon and the steak. Will definately return.

I love this place. The nachos are my favorite in the city (and I love nachos). They put REAL cheese on them and tons of other tasty stuff and they're huge and only $8. The chili, calamari or blackened string beans are also fabulous for a snack when you're feeling poor or just getting your drink on. And drinks aren't too expensive at all. The burgers are great, catfish is great...shepherds pie... it's all great and they dont stop serving food until pretty late, I think. Oh, and they're totally accomidating: cheese and sourcream-less nachos for my vegan friend? No problem! (And it happens to be just a few doors down from my favorite off-off-broadway spot, The Tank @ Collective Unconsious!) Big Souths Love! And happy hour is $1 off everything, btw.

I stumbled on this place whilst on jury duty. Nice comfortable place, friendly service. A yummy catfish sandwich with a substantial tossed salad and a glass of pinot noir made jury duty a lot more palatable!
