I use to be a regular customer and loved the service. My latest experience was terrible the waitress was very rude impolite as well as one of the managers towards my party of friends and family. We were not respected as paying customers but treated with disrespect from the beginning which consisted of forgotten orders, inappropriate language, my party being... More

This is for Tracy's review regarding the burger with wax paper.

The patio rocks. I like to sit out with Guinness and wings and read a paper. The waitstaff is well-schooled, attentive and knowledgeable.

A friend and I decided to check out the restaurant since it's somewhat newly open and we haven't ate there yet. We were greeted right away and seated. We decided to order an "Ale Cheddar Dip" appetizer from the fall menu for $12. When it came to the table, it was luke-warm at best and there wasn't $12 worth of... More

This pub has by far the best pub food I've ever had. Everything we tried was extremely delicious, go with the unusual it is wonderful. I had the appetizer for my main (mini stuffed yorkies, with the short rib) every bite was spectacular. The other starters were amazing too.

Four of us had lunch here. One had linguine and shrimp and the rest of us had the grilled chicken salad. The meals were good and the salad ingredients were fresh and crisp. Our server was very pleasant and caring. Great atmosphere.

The food was excellent Irish pub food. We had the 'Irish chip' nachos were are really excellent and practically a meal on their own. My mum had the steak and mushroom boxty, which was a lovely potato pancake stuffed with steak and mushrooms and was delicious. The warm goat cheese salad was very good. Lamb Burger was excellent as was... More
