It's a small pub with an ultra casual atmosphere provided by the clientele and low key, friendly bartenders and waitresses serving cheap drinks and casual pub fare. The bar is long with lots of seats and serves beer, wine and liquor. Above the bar are 5 TV screens, various beer signs, and musical instruments including guitars and tambourines hang high on the walls to add to the decor. There are also a couple of tables along the wall and in the back to sit at and kick back and relax. The simple and antiquated bar also has a small upper platform level near the entrance separated from the bar by a 3 foot wall and hanging plants. This section has 4 booths to sit at and comfortably drink and eat.
The highlights of The Pub House are a loud playing jukebox with plenty of selections from the good old days along with some newer tunes, and one popular pool table in the back. Line your pile of quarters up on the pool table and soon will come your turn to challenge the winners of the previous game. On Special Events nights, there is also live entertainment and the last time I was there, I saw 8 year old Anneli sing with Fat Daddy and Ed Blume played the guitar.
The pub fare consists of burgers, chicken sandwiches, steaks, pork ribs, oysters, fish and daily specials ranging from $6 - $13 with appetizers under $5. There is also a kid's menu and several pies are included on the dessert menu. For a fun time with the family or friends, check out this down home pub.
