There's no need to elaborate... it's certainly been one of the strangest and toughest years imaginable and I'm pretty certain everyone is thrilled to leave 2020 in the past. This is just a quick, brief message to say HAPPY NEW YEAR and we look forward to serving you during the much better times ahead!
One more quick reminder - the Pub closes today at 6:00 PM but will be open fur full service on New Years Day 11 AM - 11 PM. Thank you for your understanding.

Traditionally every year the Pub has a New Years Eve party that's open for all patrons and we've been receiving many inquiries regarding our status for this coming Thursday. Being these are unusual times and the ridiculous "indoor dining closure mandates" are still in effect, there seems no need to jeopardize the safety of individuals for a public gathering even if the turnout was very low. Therefore, the Pub has made the decision to forgo this years party; we will close to the public for the evening on December 31st at 6:00 PM. Note that we will resume regular full service business 11 AM - 11 PM on Friday January 1st.
We wish all our staff, patrons and families a very a festive and safe New Years Eve... and the best news to report is that we can finally be rid of 2020!
December 25, 2020
On behalf of all the Pub staff we want to wish you and yours a very Merry (and safe) Christmas. As a reminder, we are open today at 5:00 PM for full bar service, but our kitchen will be closed. Regular hours (11 AM - 11 PM) resume on Saturday December 26th.
December 17, 2020
As is our tradition, the Pub will be open for full service on Christmas Eve, Thursday December 24th (kitchen closes at 9 PM). We're here for you! Also, on Christmas Day most of our staff has the day off but we will open at 5 PM for full bar service.

These offers are meant for dine-in only but as a thanks to all our patrons they are also available for carry-out!

On Thanksgiving Day (Thursday 11/26) the Pub will open at 5:00 PM, full bar service available but our kitchen will be closed. Traditionally many of our patrons bring some leftover food to share, so there should be plenty of snacking available!
November 20, 2020
Plain & simple... YES WE ARE OPEN for full regular business and will continue to remain open for all our patrons. Regardless of the current climate and "mandates" it is important to us that YOU have the choice of what you can do and where you can go for lunch, dinner, drinks, whatever. We of course also offer carryout and online ordering & delivery via DorrDash. THANK YOU for your support!
November 16, 2020
Once again, THANK YOU for your patronage! Though we are pretty much fully stocked, during these uncertain times we must remain rather cautious in our purchasing... so there is a chance during the week that we may run out of some food & drink items. If this happens, we do apologize for the inconvenience but rest assured it will just be a temporary situation. Thank you for your understanding.
November 13, 2020
We are pleased to announce that our efforts over the past couple days has left our establishment in a very clean and safe condition, so we will again be open for regular business starting today! Having said that, please continute to check back with us here and on our Facebook page for important updates as the situation in our state continues to change. Also note that our hours of operation have changed slightly - open seven days a week 11 AM - 11 PM, and our kitchen is open until 9 PM.

We are all well aware it’s not just flu season but also that coronavirus cases have been steadily rising within our state and region. To stay ahead of the curve (and keep it flattened here) we are taking additional precautions to assure the overall safety of our customers and staff. On Wednesday (11/11) and Thursday (11/12) the Pub will be closed for all business so we can concentrate on deep cleaning and directing recommended sanitization efforts throughout the building. We will reopen for regular business hours on Friday, November 13th.
Note that moving forward we will continue with regular full building sanitization, most likely on non-busy days - this will be noted in advance right here and also on our Facebook page.
We apologize for the inconvenience but will be ready for the weekend! Thank you for your understanding.
November 9, 2020
Summer in November continues at least for a couple more days... join us at the Pub as we do have some limited outdoor seating still set up. Of course we are also open inside for regular business. THANK YOU for your support & patronage.

All of us at the Pub wanted to thank our loyal patrons and plenty of new customers for being overwhelmingly behind our decision to stay open. As stated in our prior announcement, it's the survival of the business and all involved with it that's at stake. Though we completely understand that our actions may not be the right direction for everyone, our goal is to give people a choice. We'll continue to follow the same safety protocol we've been doing for months... so feel free to join us during business hours, call us for carry-out, or ignore us altogether. It's YOUR choice, and that's what's important!
Though we are currently fully stocked for full operations, the uncertainty of business levels in the immediate days ahead required a severe cutback in our normal weekly purchases. That means there is a chance we may run out of some menu & drink items, but rest assured we'll still be "good" for the weekend and of course will restock accordingly next week.
Our Halloween Party (with a live DJ) that was planned for this Saturday (10/31) has been canceled. Even though everyone attending would be wearing masks (either costume or the others), hosting a large gathering at this time simply isn't the right thing to do. We will still be open for regular business, so feel free to dress up, come out and enjoy good food, drink & camaraderie!

Despite the state mandates targeting the closure of bars and restaurants in our region effective this Wednesday (10/28), the Pub - along with our connected neighbors at Big Iron Horse BBQ - have made the personal and business decision to remain fully open. It was proven during the first shutdown that we were not designed to be "to-go" type of establishments, so simply stated our businesses will not be viable if expected to go through that once again. There isn't any other choice if we have any hopes for us to survive and our employees to be able to pay bills and provide for their families.
Understand that this decision is not meant to downplay the severity of the virus. We know how devastating it has been for those who have lost loved ones and for society as a whole. While open we will continue to do our best by taking all proper safety measures in our establishments to keep our customers and staff safe. Our goal is to give YOU the options without questionable mandates dictating what you can and cannot do. Regardless of if you choose to frequent us or stay home, we completely respect your decision... just know that you're always welcome and we plan on being here for you.
