Went with some family and friends for a late night cover band on a Saturday night!! The rock cover band was absolutely amazing and made for a super fun night. The servers were great but all the girls in our group had very weak cocktails. The guys drinks were fine so we ended up rotating drinks every now and then.

The service was prompt and pleasant, the food is better than most pub food and the Guiness Stew has more meat than vegetables. The onion rings are scrumptious! The view of Banderas Bay is free and a perfect location to view the activity on the Mallecon. The bathrooms are really clean. I givevthis place a 9/10...

My husband and I went here to watch the sunset, we were not disappointed. View really good and great for people watching. The stairs are not the easiest to navigate though. I was wanting a change from tacos so I had a really good burger and the fries which satisfied my craving. My husband had the Guiness Irish stew served... More

We (2 couples) enjoyed our meal and the view is really nice IF you are near the ledge facing the ocean... BUT...we could not believe the little portions...we could counted the fries like probably 10 on the plate...we left HUNGRY. The waiter was really nice... They have someone outside on the malecon, coaxing people to drop in, by offering 2... More

Jon has done a great job with this bar/pub. I had the Sheppard pie this time. It was awesome, as is the fish and chips. You get great drinks and entertainment on the weekends. Great place to watch the sunset and people watch.

Have you ever walked into a pub and immediately felt at home, John Murphy himself will make you feel that way. Bless him and his staff for this home away from home. The view is well worth the price of admission which is free. Tell John Hello for me.
