Went on a date night with my wife. I had shepherd's pie and it was tasty. We had an appetizer of onion rings. Good selection of beers. My wife had fish & chips and became very ill afterward. **BE CAREFUL!** My wife has a shellfish allergy. The fried shrimp, onion rings, fish, etc. all are cooked in the same fryer.

I loved the shepherd's pie last time so went back some 2 years later. This time with a baby. It was as amazingly good food as I remembered. The corned beef and cabbage, we discovered, were even better than the pie...and I didn't know anything could be better. 2 adults, shepherd's pie & corned beef meals, 2 beers, around $55... More

We went with friends to enjoy some good beers and good food. Would definitely go back. The owners and the staff are really great people.

Service was attentive and beers were great. A lively and friendly place. Corn beef and cabbage was too salty; fried calamari was oily (sic) and rubbery; battered shrimp was crunchy and went well with the beers.

The atmosphere was cozy, menu offered many choices - from authentic Irish fare to American burgers. Irish stew was thick, meat was tender, large servings, price was right. Numerous beers, local brews available. Staff were very friendly - service prompt.

Yes, it was packed and loud around 7pm on weekday night, but service was great and we've got plenty of attention. Our diner was tasty, however my son's pizza wasn't the best. Maybe we'll have more luck next time. Overall it's a great place for diner and we liked the dining room ambiance.

Loved this pub. Service was great and everyone worked well together. We tried the Mac & Cheese-the best we ever head. Loved the pizza and bread pudding desert too. A new go to place for Tahoe.
