I visited this bar during another of Phoenix's very hot days and the cool temperature was a relief for someone not used to the temperatures. The member of bar staff was friendly and engaging throughout, he made me feel welcome and was conversational and warm. Although I visited during a period when offers were on the prices in general seemed... More

I've been back 2 times with an excellent experience both times. On the first visit, which was with a business associate, the server patiently waited for our orders while we perused the menu. Made a specific, non-menu, drink order which came back perfectly. She suggested the steak and Guiness boxty, a beefy/mushroomy/rich stew with a slab of ultra smooth mashed... More

Seamus is my go-to place in downtown phoenix. Have never had a bad time! Bartenders take good care of you if you are polite and patient :)

My husband and I visited the Pub on a trip to Phoenix over Thanksgiving weekend. Not much open downtown, but the Pub was. Very tasty Irish Stew, and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his scotch flight. Good service, clean, very enjoyable.

very small inside, clean, didn't smell of smoke, Had cider on draught so that was a plus. Ordered the patty melt- sandwich was great, steak fries so so. Don't sit next to the window in the afternoon-very warm.

My friends and I ended up here three nights. Very professional bartenders and a colorful crowd from all walks of life. Dive bar ephemera is the decor and it is the kind of place I like to go when having more than three.

I found myself here a few times during this business trip because it was a typical good Irish pub. We ate some food here- and that was also the typical greasy pub fare - you know, average. Our waitress seemed a bit surly but she was busy and that was average too. So although this is all average, we did... More

The whisky selection is amazing. Several different flights to choose from if you want to sample something new for a reasonable price. The Guinness is poured perfectly. My wife tried the fish and chips. The fish was moist and the coating hot and crisp. The chips were tasty ( I stole some). The shepherd's pie was excellent. The place is... More

First impressions are everything and the bouncer at the door was a hoot. Loved his friendly welcome and assistance with cutting and lighting cigars in the outdoor area. Non-smoking inside. Mostly wood interior that felt like an authentic Irish pub. Beer was excellent and service was quick and appropriate. Friendly waitress.
