Elevated pub food

Chef Opal Broderick has created a new menu that elevates standard pub fare to new heights. A great selection of Apps/Shares/Sides includes such munchies as Creole BBQ Wings and Loaded Mac & Cheese. Our new menu also presents a mouthwatering Wedge Salad as well as a good assortment of pub classics such as a spicy chicken sandwich, a double cheeseburger, and a braised short rib sandwich. The menu is rounded out with comfort classics, including a vegan Shepherd's Pie, beer battered jumbo shrimp over fried rice, and Chicken and Waffles.
