The food here is good, the shrimp and grits are excellent. The restaurant itself is in an old storefront that has been renovated. The acoustics are a bit "hollow" so it is quite loud. The downtown/Railroad Avenue area is picturesque and there is a lot of activity. All in all, worth checking out.

Honestly, taking a southern low country food and schmearing the shrimp with Guinness BBQ sauce does not make it Irish. Shrimp has a delicate flavor and dousing it with BBQ sauce is criminal. More traditional Irish cuisine please.

Good sized portions, good sized beer, With friends having fun, we were a little confused about a women's softball tournament of the TV. But hey, we were in Alabama there is a limit to how far Irish goes. But as far as the food was far enough excellent fare.

We enjoyed the experience. We went with new neighbors however he loves different beers and we don't drink beer. Most of the food was fried and heavy on the calorie. We try to eat healthier. Not a fan of bar food, would have loved a healthier alternative.

The Food was decent, mac and cheese seemed to be box/frozen kind. Burger was good. Place needs a slight overhall/renovation to clean it up some. We will pick another restaurant next time we... More

My review is mixed. The food was fine as well as the prices. The bldg. was nice and the staff that I met were great. I just love Irish restaurants. I lived in a town once with a meg O'Malleys that I loved. I visit Destin often and enjoy going to McGuires. Those two are so different, but so good.... More

We have been here several times. If you go Mon-Fri they have a meat and three option for around $8.00. This is a ton of food for a great price. On our last trip, I ordered the grilled fish, green beans, mashed potatoes, and broccoli salad. My fish came out fried, but was good and a huge piece so I... More

Four of us stopped by one night for dinner. The food was quite good and the service was terrific. I had the fish and chips which were quite good and one in our party enjoyed the Irish Stew. I would go here again if I were in the area.
