This tavern is in a huge old house. I drive past there a lot and am curious about it. Anyone try this place?

    I think it's closed. I saw a liquor license application on the door.

      Dang. I pulled into the parking lot yesterday and there were cars, but maybe the cars belonged to people working on the place or something.

      I went there for a few work parties and the food was terrible.

        I've been there a few times, but never to eat. We stopped for a couple of drinks and some bar snacks. I have no idea whether it's still open.

          Definitely more of a college kid hangout than a real restaurant. I have not been there in years, but at night it is your typical loud, crowded, dirty college type bar. I did love it back when I was 20!

            it's closing the end of this week. They do have great buffalo chicken sandwiches so if you have a chance stop in and try one. Other than that typical bar food

              New sign is up but the traffic is so bad when I go past that I can only get a quick glance. MaBarkers? Doesn't seem right. Anyone know what's up with this location?

                It's called McGurks, but doesn't appear to have opened yet.

                  It's "MaGerks" and it's a few location chain out of Maryland that plans to offer real Philadelphia cheesesteaks which should be interesting.
