Every time I come here, I am never disappointed. The staff is very nice and they try to get your food to you the fastest way possible. They are very accommodating to children as well. Their burgers and wings are always so good.

The bar/restaurant definitely had character. It is Irish themed but only a few Irish options. We found opportunities with overall cleanliness. The bathrooms were out of soap, not very clean and smelled. The food was average, portions were big and the service was mediocre. Staff...More
