Had a burger for lunch. Biggest burger I have ever had. It was delicious. Fries were chunks of potatoes cooked in butter. Not a good idea if you are watching your weight.

Fantastic menu offerings and attentive service . The seafood and pork are always a perfect choice . Bar/pub tenders have great personality and can keep your glasses full for sure . Atmosphere rivals any Irish Pub experience .
