Really nice pub!

The decor is inviting and the servers are attentive. The food may be on the pricier side for pub fare but it is always served fresh in a reasonable amount of time and many of the sauces etc. are made from scratch.

Great atmosphere, great staff. The food was really good value for money. It's located right downtown Barrio, Ontario. Looks like a real Irish pub and has the beers to go with it.

The kitchen (at lunch) seemed really slow: 30 minutes for the appetizers, another 30 for the meal. But still worth the wait.

Great bar, good place to go and meet friends or business acquaintances any time of day. I recommend the nachos plate or guiness poutine although lately it is a bit salty.

The food is great! I've noticed the day staff are very friendly but the night staff are inattentive and unfriendly. Very very busy in the summer/weekends and nights. Good selection of beer, could use a little more craft beer in my opinion

Wow, this place is big! As we walked to our seats it was like it just kept going. Nothing bad to say. Beer was cold, service was prompt and friendly and the food was outstanding.

Always good! Food is plentiful for the price and a great variety of beer! Sheppards pie is to die for!

Just wanted to rave about the nachos that are served here. They are home-made potato chips....very thin. And you get a mountain of them with all the fixins. Worth a try....for sure. I have gone here for lunch a number of times with friends and everyone enjoyed their menu selection. It can be very noisy. If busy, the service can... More

What can I say? This is the place to go for a drink when out on the town or even for a sit down with family! The food and atmosphere is just simply incredible and the nachos are to die for! Service was simply top notch and the staff was extremely tentative! Did I mention the nachos?
