One word to describe this place, different. This is in the heart of Brookswood where there are a lot of farmers, ranchers, and other cow pokes. Not a country bar by any means but it has a rustic look and feel to it seeing that there are motor bikes and horses parked in the same area, yes there is a post to tie your horse to in case you ride there on one.
The pub has a cozy remote cabin feel to it, nice fireplace, comfy chairs and tables, old book cases and rustic pictures and paintings. There is what my friends call the "Knights of the round table" there as it is a large oval like table that can hold around eight people I think but if you want it be there early.
Patrons are hard working farmers, trades people, and average joe's who grab a bite to eat, have a beer and talk b.s. about their work day. Older crowd which is nice so there aren't any young people acting foolish here causing problems.
Service here is great as the waitresses are the more old school, the "don't like it hun? kiss my grits" attitude. They are fast, prompt, and remember who you are if you come here on a regular basis.
Food you get here are generous portions, nachos were mountain high, fish and chips were big and not greasy, and the sandwiches are great.
If you go on a Friday night for karaoke be there early to get a table as the palce fills up quickly. There is one older fellow who sings there we call "Chester" he is a great singer and has great audience appeal , he also serenades the ladies both young and old. My only beef is that the younger people (19-23) go up there drunk and make an attempt to sing which kills the mood.
But if you want great good, service, and a good time go to the Artful Dodger Pub
