Went there with friend for a pint of Guinness. This is an unadulterated Irish pub, with all the good feelings.

Had the pleasure of eating what I now know is the best Seafood Chowder in Belfast! No potatoes, just fresh seafood and cream. A genuine bowl of happiness. San Francisco has some culinary competition

The patrons of this bar are very friendly and welcoming of out-of-town visitors. Also, the prices of the drinks are quite reasonable..
