We stopped in on Halloween night. Piano player was very entertaining. Bar service was slow and no servers were coming around to tables, at least that we could see. It was fun though--a little rowdy and crowded, people sing along to well-known songs. But a fun place to be on a Halloween/Saturday night. Very fun experience. I would recommend stopping... More

It's a piano bar and Irish pub all in one! Loved the atmosphere inside. It's a great place to stop and have a drink. You forget you're on the riverwalk while you're inside. Highly recommend.

The best part of coming here is sitting outside, sipping a drink and listening to the pianist inside playing one song after another. Quite good! Could have sat there all night, but to too much else to see around the Riverwalk. Drinks were good, food looked good but we had already eaten.

I rarely ever visit Irish pubs as I live in Ireland and don't like imitations. Anyway just my gripe. Stopped here for a coffee, the server was very friendly and service was good. They offered a good selection of drinks and food. I would imagine it's very busy evenings and weekends as its at a popular part of the river... More

We stopped in for a Guinness. Got a whole lot more! Guy who played piano could play just about anything requested and really got the crowd into it! Was great fun for a Monday night! Just the right size of pub. The only disappointment was they don't serve IRISH mules!

We loved Donald who played the piano and sang. We loved the peanuts all over the floor. The beer was great too, especially the Guinness.

Lots of place to eat and enjoy entertainment on the Riverwalk. We stopped in at Durty Nellie's and had a fine time. They have a variety of items and not just the traditional Irish. We had the Shepard's Pie and also fish and chips. All was great and service was great.

We ordered fish and chips and it was great! Probably the music, even if funny, was too loud! Moreover a bit expensive: 2 fish and chips and 2 guinness almost 50$..Really nice place btw!

We stopped here with my wife and 11 year daughter. of course we always sit outside. Inside was very lively, and fun, yes kids were inside also, we sat outside cause we prefer. Food was good, drinks were good. Proabley more of a party place for 21-30 crowd, but not bad.

Thank Ken S
