Neighborhood: University/Main Gate Square

Cuisine: Pub

Yelp rating: 3.5 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "What is it they say? Location, location, location. Because that is one of the best things Frog & Firkin have going for them. Smack-dab in the middle of University, it's a prime spot for hanging out, watching the game, partying before the game, people watching, drinking and filling your belly with something to sop up the alcohol."

(15) Kingfisher
