This is a great place to come for an appetizer/drink or for drinks with the band. We always enjoy the food and atmosphere--their breakfast/bruch is also very good!

Great food, Great Irish atmosphere and authentic Irish selections. Really nice outside patio and daily special that are really a true bargain. The night we ate the place was extremely quiet, warmer weather will have this packed, as it should be.

It's so authentic in there you think you're in Ireland -- well you are in a sense. Love the bar area and the fireplace. Corn beef and fish and chips are good choices. People who work there are always so nice and friendly.

Good for a cold brew with burger or corned beef. Food is what you would expect to find in a pub simple but good. Service is friendly and attentive. Visit frequently as an alternative to fancier food.

I am told that if you praise everthing, others think it isn't a legit review. Well the truth is, we had a great time. Atmosphere was delightful (We sat in a 'Snug' booth just off the outside seating), our waiter was a lot of fun...More
