If there is one thing you have here, it needs to be the Irish Beef Stew. The flavors are rich and complex, I'm sure it takes a day of simmering to get all of those delicious flavors to shine through. The fish and chips are awesome nice n crispy on the outside, moist n flaky on the inside. Treated like... More

From the moment we walked in, we were treated like family. The corned beef & cabbage and the BBQ ribs were tasty and plenty for four people to share. We highly recommend the warm apple pie with ice cream for dessert❣️GREAT experience. Our Irish host seemed to know everyone and genuinely love his job.

There are many cultural centres all over the US. This must be one of the very best! The new chef in the kitchen is doing very solid work and what was served was exceptionally good, solid Irish-influenced food. The personal atmosphere and attention made us feel immediately at home and amongst friends. Live music was there on a Friday night,... More

Great place for a Sunday Brunch. Many different choices for breakfast, as well as a good selection of sandwiches. Best prices I have seen for a Brunch! Dinners are more expensive. I am only rating the Brunch in this review.

Came here with family and friends for a celebration. Great place to do that! The food was good (steak) and a big serving. The beer was good and we have all the space to be lout and have fun. The sherbet was "different". I was not able to define what it flavour was it. The apple pie was much better.

We ate here primarily for convenience -- we were attending a show in their auditorium later. The service was excellent as was the house-made brown bread. The food was standard fare. This would not be a destination restaurant for me, but it was entirely satisfactory as a place to grab a bite before a UICC event.

The food was fresh, plentiful, and all three meals came out hot. The special was lamb shanks and mushroom polenta--excellent! The service was amazing as usual: at 7:00 all tables were full, even a large table upstairs, but the one waitress and busser handled it with friendliness and speed. Complements to our waitress Eileen! A special place with a friendly... More

We had a impromptu dinner adventure in the neighborhood and ran into this place, we had one of the most tender prim ribs in mushroom sauce ever! The host was very kind and the service staff was very professional, I'm definitely coming back very soon to try their shepherd pie, corn beef and other good stuff on the menu if... More

A truly truly wonderful experience. I would recommend this to any and all. A still rather secret treasure in a city filled with gems.
