Love the bar. Good beer, sports on TV, and occasional live music. The restaurant is cozy, good food, and priced fair.

Located in old town Roseville. Casual and relaxed atmosphere. Very good selection of beers(many local) on tap and remarkably good food for a pub. The bartender/wait staff were very good and helpful. A bunch of TVs to keep you up to date with sports.

Great Irish food, service, and atmosphere. I recently heard about this restaurant from a local wine and beer distributor. I celebrated my birthday there with close friends. We all enjoyed a memorable evening.

The best Corn Beef Ever! My wife and I drive by Old Roseville everyday. We were in the mood for something different for lunch and thought we would try something new... The corn beef was fantastic and the service was exceptional... We brought a group of our friends by for a Christmas get together and had the same results /... More

On a recent visit to Roseville, being from Ireland I was looking for a pub (of course). This place bills itself as an Irish pub - but is anything but. No atmosphere, tile counters and bar - and mostly quite unfriendly patrons and clueless bartender. Besides being quite young and not very good bartender - she insisted (argued) that among... More

First off, for a bar, the menu is awesome and just what you would think is great Irish "bar" food. The fish and chips are the best in town and I have never had a reuben that tastes so good! They offer a good selection of local and traditional beers on tap that rotate around the clock. They offer a... More

This is a big "go-to" place loved by the locals. It has a Cheers bar vibe, great food served warm and flavorful. The selection of Irish whiskey is top shelf.

I was there at 4 p.m. on a Thursday afternoon and the place was almost deserted: five drinkers at the bar, and two seated diners. I ordered a cheeseburger to go. It took nearly 20 minutes to get to me and I left in a funk. Once home, I opened up the burger package and there was a small freshly... More
