I had a few pints here and liked the setup. A traditional Irish pub with a good selection of beer and liquor. This is a great place to have a few drinks and watch the game or catch with friends.

This is more of a neighborhood bar. We stayed at the Residence Inn and it was right around the corner. We sat outside on their small patio and enjoyed people watching. We had a long day walking the city and we were tire of spending...More

I was at the Marriott for a conference, and a colleague and I walked around the neighborhood looking for a place for lunch. A lot of the places seemed overpriced and/or not so nice. Then we stumbled into O'Callaghan's. The place was clean and comfortable....More
