This is a great place to have a drink and sing some Irish tunes. If you love those piano sing along songs this is your place. It's loud and funny with quick service, once you find a seat. Its not a big place, but be patient. The piano man takes a break every 20 minutes that's when someone will leave.... More

I've been to better pubs. Have had better service and better music. It was hot and humid. The place got better once more people showed up, but the entertainment left alot to be desired singing wise, but was actually a good piano player. Maybe I should visit on an actual weekend night to get the full effect.

Reuben fries were yummy. Server Francisco made our visit totally fun! Fried pickles were tasty. Francisco answered our questions with fabulous sense of humor while educating us? Chips and queso was enjoyable. Francisco made us feel like we were his only table. Prickly pear margarita was an experience. Francisco is really good at his job. Highly recommend this as a... More

Durty Nellies lives up to it's name with peanut shells all over the floor and the smell of spilled beer and laughter with loud folks sharing old drinking stories over a piano player singing songs we all know the words to! This is a great place to party and throw back a pint or three! Irish coffee's where strong and... More

You sure can't beat the atmosphere of sitting on the patio on a moonlit night and enjoying a beer while boat loads (literally) of tourists sail by singing Christmas carols. An amusing place to enjoy a pint and people watch.

Dear Mkteach, I am so glad to hear you had a great night with us! Our location on the River Walk is perfect for people-watching and taking in a cool December night. Of course, a beer or two don't hurt. Also, we have live entertainment inside, which all of our patrons rave about. See you next time! Cheers, Zain B. More
