This place was built many years back to grab cross-town travelers. As such, it's much bigger than a local pub and can seem a little non-intimate. On the flip side, there seems to be a lot of regulars and the whole place is old-school in decor and thus doesn't feel too anonymous.

I'd be happy to stop by if traveling by again, but not sure if I'd travel to there on purpose. Unless I was... more
