We went there just for a few drinks but I think that is basically what you can do there: drink. When we were there they had a live band (extremely loud) playing and the place was jammed with people. There would have been a possibility to have some "pub food" but even locals told us that in concerns of food... More

Had a nice dinner at this place, however anyplace that bills itself as an Irish pub without Harp or traditional irish fare is not what i would call an irish pub, good service, quick and good food, polite staff and reasonable prices

I don't know if we happened to catch this pub on an off night, but I've been of legal drinking age for over 30 years and this is by far my worst experience ever in a pub!! The service was awful. Our server took over 30 minutes to come and take our drink order. (We would have left but the... More

Shamrock City is the best bar in St. John's to go for a few beer on the weekend. Really friendly staff, good service, and good beer.

Planned to go here for the evening of music. Arrived at 6:30pm -seated ourselves close to the bar, where we could see the singer. The service was prompt and friendly, the food hot and fresh. My husband tried the cod cheeks which he found a bit chewy, I tried the seafood platter which had battered cod, a skewer of bacon... More

We went to this restaurant after an afternoon boat tour and found the service great. Welcoming atmosphere. Good food. My husband had two orders of cod tongues. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I love this place!!! I've never had food from here but the atmosphere and the drinks are what always bring me back. There is always live music playing an always a crowd. If your looking for a place to hang out with friends any day of the week, this is the place to go.
