Wiskey Heaven – Regardless of what others say- Pint's Pub will forever be ingrained into my soul as a MUST VISIT place. Incredible selection of whiskeys with a staff that is there to educate. (I don't know about you but I'm not cool enough to be versed in the knowledge of over 300 whiskeys.) Also- one thing that aggravates me every time - peat is not like moss that grows on anything you've seen- peat moss is DIFFERENT FYI!!!! Scotch whiskey is not MOSSY! Too aggravated to write a perfect review but to anyone considering going to Pint's- this is a one of a time opportunity- GO, TAKE SUGGESTIONS, ENJOY AND SAVOR. You only live once, and Pint's should be a part of that life- TRUST ME!
British People Have Bad Teeth – I knew British people had bad teeth, bad breath, and a bad sense of fashion... now I know they have bad manners as well.
If you are a scotch aficionado, or a d-bag, or both, and really like this place then by all means continue to go here.
I personally feel that the idea of Brittish and Irish Pubs has gotten stale here in the States. I would much rather go to an American Sports bar every time. Why? Well all you need to do to open a "British" or "Irish" Pub in the U.S. is own a bunch of whiskey or scotch, sprinkle a piece of parsley on some freedom fries, and offer impeccably poor service.
Im not even going to bother telling you how the bar tender managed to provoke a verbal tussle with me within 30 seconds of walking into the door for the first time. Its just another sad, untimely, tragedy. What I will say is he is pathetic and I hope to see him and his little shortened britches held in place by suspenders on a street corner. Thats right I hope he finds himself living out on the street like the bum that he is.
Average at best burger – The beer was exceptional but the burger was something I would expect from hamburger Stand. My wife and I went there in May and first sat in the bar area and since it was louder then we wanted asked to sit in the dining area and I thought the waitress was going to have a fit. We just want to move geez. Don't bother unless you want to sit in the bar and have a few beers!!
So Rude I will Never Visit Again – Went to Pints for a friend's birthday thinking we'd have a drink after dinner at a near by restaurant, big mistake! The staff was incredibly rude in general and even more so when questioned about some of the whisky on the menu (mostly because they didn't have half of them.) Further, after ordering a very unpleasant "Isle of Jura" 12yr old, they became indignant when asked to see the bottle. Being as I drink Jura as a matter of course and happen to have had the distilery of the real Isle of Jura whisky as a client I know both the whisky and the maker, I felt I had the right to inquire...what they offered was something else that calls itself by the same name by a second rate distillery. I say shame on both of them. However more than that, I say work on your customer service.
Also I might add that if you are looking for an authentic British pub experience, you won't find it here. It is no more than a theme pub with all the cliches of Britishness you will can find in any American style British or Irish pub.
Such sensitive reviewers........ – Hey, you won't find Stepford style servers or bartenders here. If you want the fake smiles and vacant chit-chat greetings, then stick with Applebees. And, leave your rugrats at home. They don't belong in a serious bar. However, if you want the best selection of Scotch Whiskys in the world, then come to Pint's. Yes, their shelves are better stocked than the Chinnery Bar in the Hong Kong Mandarin Oriental. Better yet, the barmen know the Whiskys in detail and are not averse to giving you a dram or two on the house, if you show some knowledge or interest. The food is decent but that's not my reason for going here. For all you super sensitive types who feel insulted at Pint's, I agree with the owner, go somewhere else!
Rude Rude Rude – They have one beer that I think is very good and of course you can't beat the selection of Scotch. However, I would find it painful to know that I am supporting an owner that is quite frankly an Ass. I came to him with a fairly minor request/complaint to have him basically tell me that he didn't care. Well I don't care if you GO OUT OF BUSINESS and move your ass back to wherever you came from..England! I came back another time because it is close to my work to have a similar experience with the manger. Perhaps he is the son.?
Mediocre food, bad service – I was excited to have an authentic British pub experience. I guess it was authentically British: slow and inattentive service and mediocre food. Charming atmosphere and the beer is ok. A disappointment.
MANAGER AND OWNER WERE RUDE – Came to pints for lunch with our kids and had very average food, but the atmosphere was decent. The real problem was when the bill came our waitress charged us $2.95 each for 2 kids lemonade that came in a very small coffee mug. We paid the bill and my husband asked the owner about it on the way out and he brushed us off and said" Oh well...that's the cost of a lemonade...if you don't like it, don't come back" By the way, same price as an adult lemonade which comes in a pint glass...not a good bargain if you're a kid. No real harm done, so we decided we might go back the next week and have a beer (WITHOUT THE KIDS) and called ahead to see if the owner would be in. In a light hearted tone I said we'd prefer to come when the owner wasn't in and the manager (Scott) told me "he's always in, so don't bother coming in EVER!"
Don't worry Scott..we wont and I hope anyone reading this review will do the same.
Cask Beer Was Awful – I've had real cask beer in Denmark at a place called Cockney Pub. Had some of the best beer I've ever had there, and Pints pale ale cask beer did not compare one iota. Thought I'd try another beer from the menu, and I was disappointed with the Airdale Pale Ale, too.
Pork tenderloins medallions looked like they'd been shaved off a Hormel.
Left after two beers and average food.
Tables were sticky, and the whole place needed a thorough scrub down.
Wont' be going back.
Grungy, improperly kept cask ale, acceptable food – The Pints Pub clearly indicates that it wants to be like a British pub, with a red telephone booth outside and plenty of signs and documents explaining or alluding to pub mannerisms. The dirty outdoor carpeted stairs are an indication that something is not quite right. Having been to a variety of pubs in England, I can attest to the fact that Pints pub is neither a good imitation of a British pub, nor a place that provides decent cask ale. A few sips of the ale and I had t set the beer aside and seek beer elsewhere later on. The food has a home-cooked quality to it, and tastes decent, but the portions are small and the presentation is lacking. The overall quality isn't all that great either, but some of the best bubs don't have the greatest food. And besides the poor quality of the beer, the numerous postings that tell the customers how one is to behave in a pub are highly irritating and actually ruin any potential parallels to actual British pubs.
