Almost there!

A very friendly staff, very cold beer, lovely environment! But the food is not the best. I tried some chicken wings and they were far from the best I had. But for sure it is a place I would come back!!

Location is fantastic with views of sunset over English Bay and fine people-watching off compact patio in good weather. Living in the neighborhood, I keep giving this place a chance and get disappointed more often than not. Service is shabby as in no greeting, especially for a touristy locale, no smiles, no menu upon arrival, and have to ask for... More

"Very good Guinness" commented my husband while drawing a happy face on the foam to check the freshness of the drink. The Goulash stew tastes as good as the ones cooked in Eastern Europe. Our server James was very friendly and helpful with the choices. The price is reasonable for such a prime location with a nice view.

Only $6 for all portions of Irish favourites; delectable Irish stew and goulash with soda bread- sure to please your palate and other tasty dishes I view looked just as appetizing. Patio outside -looking on to the ocean adds to the great atmosphere.

Someone had recommended Shamrock Alley as a good place to eat but we weren't that impressed. It's more a pub than a restaurant and when we were there it was a bit too noisy. The bar staff had their work cut out to control a group of drunks who were arguing loudly and annoying other customers. The beer is a... More

Set out with all the normal relics & signage of an 'Irish Bar' or what people expect to see. The 2 burgers on special were NFL aligned and it was still early so we ended up only having a couple of drinks. It was a good location near the entry/exit to Stanley Park and overall I could see the place... More

this is a nice location and the removal of the deep fryer smell is great. This location has huge potential and they are moving in the right direction. They just need to remember the sunny time of the year is the easy time.
