Does anyone else love this place as much as my husband and I do?
I'm curious to know what others like or dislike about it. It's our sort of go-to place for casual American fare: good sandwiches, above average French onion soup, good beef, chicken, and seafood dishes. My husband, having grown up going there, tells me the pizza is wonderful, but I haven't tried it. Good beers on draft, cozy ambience. Priced competitively but, in my opinion, modestly for what you get.
Yes, Outer Drive just west of Pelham.
I like the way you summed it: non-pretentious neighborhood place.
As a quick aside, it's not a dive-bar, but more of a tavern, if that sways anyone's opinion on making a virgin voyage.
Our last trip there was $40 +tip, and we had:
Prime rib with salad, potato, cup of soup
Fried clam dinner with salad
Crock of French onion soup
Appetizer of mushroom caps stuffed with crab, bacon, and covered in a sort of bearnaise that can only be described as decadent (don't tell your doctor you ate this); it is probably the best "appetizer" I've ever eaten, and I put that in quotes because it's a meal by itself
Two pints of beer
One iced tea
