from the moment you walk in this place you feel you are traveling back in time. The shamrocks on the ceiling, the ethnic round bar & you in Boston, Liverpool or Glasgow! The staff are cool & the food is to die for

Had the fried chicken sandwich. Was great. The hot pretzel was a great starter. Great place! The place has an old school LA feel. Really enjoyed it.
