Nice Little Pub ....

Good beer and a relaxed atmosphere with live music. The food was okay.. just what I'd expect from a pub. Nice friendly staff. I would go back on my next visit

Another fine Irish type pub in downtown St. John's. Has great cold draft on tap. My wife didn't want pub grub again, so we left. Couldn't get into anywhere else we wanted, so settled for a chain steakhouse. Big mistake. Go early to these popular places (5:00 PM) to make sure you get a spot.

OMG I love this place. Great beer selection, and the wait staff are nice. The live music is what I go for. I just can't get enough of this place when I am in the area. Always a guaranteed fun night of good music and dancing.

We heard the music as we were walking by and stopped in for a drink on our way to dinner. No tables available so we grabbed a drink at the bar and stayed for the music. The band were great!

Stopped in for supper before heading to the George street festival and I almost want to stay and skip the festival. Staff was fast and friendly, food was delicious (especially the bacon wrapped scallops) and the atmosphere is great! I got the 'land and sea' meal and I would definitely recommend the seafood over the steak but they aren't really... More

We just stopped in for a beer while we were walking around St. John's. We sat for quite some time before getting service, in fact we were almost ready to leave as there are too many places around to have to wait like this. The bar was not busy and two waitresses were just sitting at the bar. Once we... More

Go early, like 5 or 6 to secure a table because the live music is worth it. The food is pretty good (pub food).

From the exterior and the decor inside I thought this was going to be a good Irish pub as I walked up and down water street looking for a good place to eat. I was sadly disappointed when I realized that it is owned and operator by jungle jims as the menu is basically half of the jj menu. When... More
