This is not a knock off or chain restaurant. This is as authentic as you can get. Food is awesome, service is attentive and ambiance perfect. If you want Irish go no place else but here.

Stopped by for lunch while visiting San Diego. They have a great selection of Irish beers, know how to properly serve a Guinness, and have a great luncheon menu. I chose the Chicken Boxty, and it was delicious.
