love the outside patio, I had a burger that was so tasty and I also had the lobster bisque that was packed with lots of meat and again so tasty. I didn't try their wings but I hear they are also great.

Enjoyed the menu, Irish dishes such as Bangers and Mash. Burgers, wraps and a couple of Italian dishes. Friendly staff. Good choice of beers, Guinness, Harp, Palm, plus standards such as Sam Adams. They need to add a signature dessert.
