The pub hosts live music nearly every night, without disappointment. We enjoyed an evening of a few drinks and a celtic band with a lot of energy.

We had a front row view of all the action on a Friday night visit to this establishment. The only table left was right in front of the stage which we were a little concerned about but it turned out to be the best spot in the house. Dinner was very good and the prices were reasonable. But the real... More

The food was great and the prices weren't too bad either. The place had a lot of people dining, was quite busy but my meal was served in a... More

I was on a business trip, and I had heard a lot about the food and atmosphere at this pub, so I thought I would stop in for a pint and a meal. It was very noisy, people were almost yelling, and I sat for 20 minutes before a server came by to get my drink order. If you are... More

The atmosphere is very Celtic. There is live music every night, and the night we went the band was quite good. The prices are a little on the steep side, though, so watch your spending. We blew $60 between the two of us, though the pints of Keith's do add up quickly anywhere you go.

I love this pub. Great Guinness, nice atmosphere, and really good food. This is one of my all time favorite pubs. An Irish pub in New Scotland.

This was the second of the three Old Triangle's that we visited during our recent trip to Nova Scotia. We loved the food, beer and atmosphere!! We had the curry chicken and the pizza- both were great!! We are wishing we had one of these in the States!!! Great pub and a must go to place for us!!

The only restaurant in Canada where we ate on 2 succesive days. The food was OK and so were the young men and women who where waiting our table. On leaving the pub on the night of our flight back to Holland, we had a little talk with the owner, a genuine Irish man who turned out to have a... More

Stopped by for TGIF evening with lots of friends. The food and refreshments were as usual top drawer. I had the Pastie pie with oven potatoes and both were fresh and hot out of the oven. Expect a crowd on a weekend but it helps create the true Irish Pub feel. Can't wait for our next ..........
