This place is just across the Lowell border on Princeton St. (Rt 3a), across from the UMass Lowell West campus.
Excellent food, served well, in a comfortable, come as you are, atmosphere. We waited 45 minutes to get in the line was still there when we left at 9:30. Parking is a little tight, as is the waiting area up front, but most people wandered off to the large bar area.
The fare is traditional pub grub, but far ranging from red sauce Italian, to Shepards Pie, to steaks and surf and turf. Everything was reasonably priced. They advertise Prime Rib all sizes, from 10 oz. to a 32 oz. monster. We ordered a NY Sirloin and a Prime Rib (not the 32 oz.). These were outstanding. Choice quality meat, cooked to order (medium rare on both). The roast had a very nice, salty crust. It had a really nice cap which is my favorite part, not too much fat. The NY Sirloin was grilled nicely a well marbled and very tasty piece of meat.
Service was excellent. These folks are obviously used to the crowd. The waitress was there when we needed her brought plenty of refills for the drinks, and checked us out (with the doggy bag) with no fuss.
This is a genuinely well run establishment that puts out good food and provides great service. Id prefer it to the Outback or Joes American B&G or similar mid-range chains. Its no Smith & Wollenskys, and its not prime quality, dry-aged beef, but both entrees were under $20 (with salad and potato), so bang for buck, its well worth going to as lots of others obviously know not many places in the burbs have people waiting to get in past 9:30.
