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.

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.

Great spot. Met the band Fire In The Kitchen We visited this pub twice while visiting St Johns. Pub is just off George Street and Tues night looked like a Friday Night. A must visit if you are in town.

We should have come here for dinner. We had eaten somewhere else, and came here for a drink and to enjoy the music. Everything was great. The service was prompt, the food that we saw being served looked terrific, and the entertainment was wonderful.
