Great location and good has a very authentic Irish pub look and the corned beef and cabbage is our favorite in the area. Actually owned by a local Irish family, go figure. try the shepherd's pie or corned beef you won't be disappointed.

This is a pub with food. The food is authentic. The bar area can get a little noisy but it's fun before going to the movies for a decent meal. It's on the corner of Main St. which is a fun place to be. Across from Starbucks if you need a reference.

While not a cheap place to eat it is quite reasonable for the quality and quantity of the food. I really love the fish and chips that are only challenged by Andreas! They also have great fresh salads and one with black berries , walnuts and fish is delish. The staff is upbeat, friendly and in constant motion. The place... More

A group of six of us were seated in a "nook" which was quiet, really the perfect place for a small group to have conversation and celebrate birthdays. I had a BLT with avocado. The bacon was thick and cooked perfectly. The others in our group enjoyed clam chowder, Rueben sandwich. All of us were pleased with our food. I... More

We stopped for a bite of lunch on our way headed north and enjoyed lunch so much we stopped on our south as we headed home.

Stopped here on a weekend and we were lucky to get a table for six in a short amount of time. There were many choices on the menu. I had the Guiness and Steak pie. It was yummy. The leek soup was terrific too. All six of us were thrilled with our choices. We shared two desserts, the Irish Cream... More
