The service in this bar was excellent. We absolutely loved our waitress who was extremely attentive and funny. Food and drinks were good. We had the quesadillas, chicken wings, and the onion rings. All were delightful (especially the garlic parm wings!!!)

Nothing to look at from the outside but decent Irish Pub feel on the inside. A bit dark if you are sitting in the back. Cheesesteak and Hot Ham and Cheese were very good and filling. A good place for lunch after taking the tour of the Yuengling brewery.

We were walking to the food store and almost passed it. I am so glad we stopped in. I had wanted to get something to hold me over until dinner. Ordered the clams and soup which was fabulos. My partner had the soup and calamari. We each shared the calamari because it was a very large plate. Large beer selection... More

If your in Pottsville you have to go here. Restaurant and bar is upstairs. Make sure to check out the downstairs and tunnels, there's a story about the building. A lot of history. To many good things on the menu to pick just one favorite. Staff was awesome! Prices are reasonable.

Been here a few times now , the pierogies are exquisite, boneless wings are super good , and the appetizer of calamari is a meal in itself , and everything is at a very reasonable price for everything, O-yeah can't forget about all the different varieties of beer that or extremely cold and refreshing. Definitely stop in this place !... More

This was our stop for lunch after the Yuengling Brewery tour, as it was just a few minutes down the road. We were one of two tables seated, but two others were filled while we were there. The service was good, and everything came out great. Definitely a stop if you are in the area! Parking is a bit tricky,... More

We only go to the St Clair location. Sit at the bar since the table service is awful. This place has awesome wings, sandwiches and shepherds pie. Guinness on draft is a plus. The keg in Pottsville is for the younger crowd that is more for the beer then the food. Haven't tried the Minersville location...yet.
