We dropped in expecting an Irish pub, based on the name. The menu is all Cajun and Louisiana fare. We had the appetizer platter, which consisted of alligator bites, catfish strips, Bloody Mary hot wings and shrimp. Everything was good. I especially enjoyed dining in the courtyard. We went in the middle of the day, so I can't speak to... More

We went twice - just husband and me. Good wings - shrimp roumalade was great. Half price apps for Friday happy hour and excellent live entertainment. Service was very attentive. Good time!

We didn't actually eat here, but wandered in because there was so much energy coming from their bar. The place was packed almost any time of day we walked by with people singing and laughing. Great for a fun atmosphere.

We went with a few work friends and I was not impressed. The music was loud outside and also inside. Our waitress was nice but the food was terrible. The "famous" hurricane drinks were good. The thing that made us leave the restaraunt was the man playing the piano. His entertainment started out comical but quickly turned raunchy. I was... More

Honestly, it's nothing special, or at least no more than the Pat O'Brien's in New Orleans. They served hurricanes prepared perfectly and good bar food.

Service is poor to the point of being non-existent. Noisy and so loud that at times it is difficult to understand anyone even if they are speaking 2 or 3 inches from your ear. Maybe it's a sign of the times but it's nothing like the New Orleans version. We won't be back.

Not great really... the place is not really kept up.. the waitress was very nice though. We sat on the patio, that was good... the bathroom was dirty and not well maintained. The food was so so. Nothing special really.

They have a nice selection of specialty drinks. The food menu is smaller, with not to many choices. Sometimes that works, for me it didn't here. Food was served quickly. We had Chicken strips, which were on the kids menu. As an adult can be ordered, but a $2 upcharge. Also had a burger, said no to the bacon, but... More

Located just off the River Walk near the Rivercenter mall. Was attracted to the place because they allow cigar smoking in the outside courtyard. Had a few beers, which at $4 were $2 cheaper than the places on the Riverwalk. Had a nice little band playing in the courtyard and had a great piano bar that was a highlight. Good... More
