Anyone been? Atmosphere? Good place to watch the game tomorrow?

    Agreed. The burger isn't outstanding but is something I look forward to; my boyfriend always gets the Niagara. Skip the weird pizza thing, though. Good for watching the game; friendly service--I'll probably be there myself over the next few days! Either there or Cronin & Phelan.

      I've been there a couple of times. Good beer selection, normal pub food; it's a good place to watch a game for sure. There's a nice corner table by the window, good for people watching at rush-hour.
