If you want amazing authentic Irish food and drink, then this is the place for you! Welcoming staff, incredible atmosphere, attentive wait staff all combine for an exceptional experience. I highly recommend the appetizers, the world famous fish and chips and an irish car bomb to enjoy with your selection,

We recently ate here while visiting family. The food was GREAT. The Guiness beer glasses were bigger than I thought. The servers were attentive. They have a great selection of traditional Irish fare. We will suggest to family to eat here again when we come to town.

It's not a British trip abroad without a trip to an Irish pub and this is definitely one of the best ones I have been to. Service and food excellent and they had live music on which helped make the atmosphere pretty good.
