As some one born and raised in Ireland, i found their version of certain Irish foods shall we say lacking, service was poor and wait times for a simple drink way to long, items like Harp were not available and the guiness was served with almost no head

Four of us stopped in for supper before a movie, it was 5:00, music was way too loud. We would expect this later in the evening for the drinking crowd We asked for music to be turned down but I guess this was too much to ask. Our server seemed very put out with us and provided less than acceptable... More

It was nice out there, they have good tables, and big umbrellas. The food is typical pub fare, served with large portions and it is always good. It is a great place... More

Ordered the lamb shank and my wife ordered the seafood pie. Both tasted good; although, the seafood pie was a little soupier than she expected. Service was very good and the atmosphere a wee bit quieter than the other restaurants we visited while in Kitchener but still a typical pub.

The food is not worth what it's priced at. The interior of the restaurant and alcohol are nice but the food is disappointing.

A cozy quaint spot for dinner. We spent a date night here with the live entertainment and really enjoyed it.
