Had lunch here on a sunny afternoon and although the inside is a pub with lots of wood paneling, we choose to go upstairs and eat on the deck. There were umbrellas to provide some shade. The place was quiet but then it was a beautiful Friday which equals lots of people working from home. We both had the veggie... More

My wife and I make a bee line here everytime business or shows bring us to Charlotte. Authentic feel to UK pub, people and interior, but not so small, which is nice. We found ourselves here on a Monday evening, We've been at lunch and dinner weekends and weekdays. Always pleasant and always good. Our server this time, Luke, was... More

A little noisy, but the staff is very friendly, large beer and wine selection, pleasant atmosphere and EXCELLENT pub food. My wife had the grilled pimento cheese with crispy bacon, our son had the Dublin burger which came highly recommended by our server and I had the fish and chips. All three of us were very happy with the food... More

Made a special trip to Charlotte just to go here for my birthday. Prices are great, food and drinks are too. Staff is very friendly. Great music! Atmosphere is perfect for both private romantic dates and nights out with friends. Love the antique bar!

The best sandwiches in the downtown area. No wonder there is a line going out the door at lunch time to pick up a sandwich.

Food was good but I have to admit that the tables need to be replaced. The welcome was great and I really appreciated being checked on by the waitress several times as I waited on my friends. Very attentive. Drinks are a bit pricer than they should be but overall, I had a great experience.

This is a place we return to time and time again for the atmosphere. We love the bar decor and Irish waiters and waitresses. They really want to serve you and make sure you have a great time. I enjoyed trying a flight of different beers and several appetizers. On Saturday nights there is often a band upstairs. Don't like... More

This is a lovely Irish Pub/Restaurant in the heart of uptown Charlotte. Spent a wonderful evening here, first with drinks at the bar and then dinner at a high top table. Irish Chicken Curry? Not a typical pub food menu item but it was very good and plentiful. My companion is a whiskey drinker and the reasonably priced flight sampler... More
