Went here on a weekend with Live music which is apparently every weekend. Specifically called and asked if they had a high chair for our little one. When we arrived (Bobby) the bouncer looked at us with two kids and said "Itís going to be a while". Now I donít usually look much into this, but I could tell that this guy wanted nothing to do with kids. Long story short, this is definitely not a kid friendly place.
We did put our name in and grabbed drinks from the bar. We only had one couple in front of us so it wasnít a big deal. Actually it was. If you go here on the weekend and the place is full, donít bother waiting for a table. Tons of people plop themselves at a table and just order drinks to listen to the music. Which I get, Iíve been there. But you have an entire back room dedicated for music, why not put the band and the people back there so people can get tables and order food?
So after 30 minutes, I strolled around to the back area and noticed a table that was open. I went back to Bobby, he said it was "reserved". Now when I had called earlier, they donít take call ahead or reservations. I shrugged and we continued to wait. I then had to use the facilities and noticed that people were now sitting at the table. Considering we were next, I decided to ask him what happened. He stated some people just grabbed drinks and decided to sit down but agreed to leave in a hour when the party showed up. Really? So lesson learned (not that I will be back) itís a free for all with the tables donít bother putting your name in.
Constructively, the do have an extensive draft list. The sad part it isnít that good. More crap on tap, than good beer. I was hard pressed to find a decent IPA at the place. Their taplister was out of date as well. I donít expect it to be perfect but when there are 5 beers on there that according to the bartender have been kicked "days ago" you are wasting my time.
I digress back to the menu and beer. The beer menu has gone downhill. It used to have some good rarities but the crap that was on tap this weekend is becoming the new normal. I donít know what happened but itís time to rethink your concept. We ordered the wings, the cheese board, and the chowder. The wings were cold by the time we got them. I couldnít get the server to come back to even ask how things were. When I said they were cold, she shrugged, and removed them. Best thing, they still charged us for them. The cheese and meat plate is 21$, now Iím not expecting an entire block of cheese, but this was a joke. The cheese was decent but a few slices of meat and cheese for 21$? Iíve been to numerous places that have a cheese plate for half that and itís loaded with good meat and cheese. Finally, the chowder, now I mean who screws up chowder right? Well it tasted like someone dumped the entire salt shaker in there. I couldnít get past it. Once again the waitress took no note and didnít bother to ask.
Long story short, there are better options out there. Especially in Plymouth.

Superb place. I shaved a couple.of points for service, because they usually just have one bartender. Very friendly and knowledgeable, but they need more help sometime.
The cask selections are often very special.
Was there recently for Founderís tap takeover...10 taps and it was a ball.
Do not leave without trying the chowder.

Nice place right in the center of Plymouth (Note: the google map is off by about 2 blocks). Visited on a Saturday evening. Live music was on. A good sized bar on one side and a row of booths on the other, with a bunch of high tops in the middle. Server was knowledgeable and very helpful. Selection was good and prices were reasonable ($6 avg pint). Surprisingly light on the IPA selection, unlike most places these days. Good selection of bottles too. They had one cask too. Food menu is basic pub food - mostly sandwiches. Pretty good overall.

Went here on Plymouth beer day. Cool location in Plymouth Center, just far enough away from the rock and Mayflower to be accessible. Great selection and knowledgeable staff. Food is good but a little on the pricey side. All in all a really good place. Iíll be back.

A. Great. Comfortable place. Sharp clean and not too bright. Staff is friendly. Owners are very enthusiastic. Pumped to have this place on the South Shore.
Q.Proper glassware. Enough said. Good bottle selection.
S.Attentive. Knowledgeable. Accurate.
S.32 taps 50+ bottles. Bottles I have ordered have been fresh. Draft lines are new so obviously clean. I believe they will stay that way.
F. Great selection, reminds me of the Publick House. Enjoyed mostly the apps so far. Quality and care is evident.
V.Not cheap, not over priced. What I expect for my money.
A must try.
