Great local, Irish Pub.

This is a great local pub If you are looking for an Irish Pub in the Village. They often have live music and it can get pretty loud but there are plenty of places that are back from the stage. The food is really good, especially the corned beef tacos which aren't on the menu anymore but they will... read more

Authentic style fish and chips. Large portions and cole slaw made with pineaple. Sounds different but it is great !! I heard positive comments from everyone around me. Other authentic Irish dishes. Has a happy hour but only $1 off drinks and a few appetizers. Should be a little " happier ". Staff is very attentive and friendly. Food comes... More

I loved everything about this pub. On a Sunday morning, it was fun to sit on the patio with our dog and eat their delicious potato pancake filled with corned beef and a yummy sauce and sip my Irish Coffee (Kathleen's Coffee) My husband had the potato pancake with the mushroom sauce. Both were delicious. Our waitress was friendly, as... More

Very nice atmosphere with a Irish live band playing. This is a pub. Not a classy restaurant. Pub food was good and beers as expected in a premium pub.

We came in one evening while on vacation and loved the whole experience! Our 3 year old granddaughter walked in and promptly walked up to the bar and climbed on a stool beside an older gentlemen and it was so cute when he turned to her and looked down and said "can I buy you a drink?" Funny! The pub... More

In and out for a quick bite of lunch mid-week. Sat at the bar and ordered a cup of the chicken cordon bleu soup from the pleasant bartendress. The soup, well, it was a peculiar tasting soup, not what I expected, but should have known with a name like that in an Irish pub it wouldn't meet my expectations. It... More

We stopped in for a late lunch after a day of sightseeing. Because it was so late (2:30 pm +/-) there was hardly anyone in the place. Our server, Jenn H, greeted us promptly. We ordered a couple of pint beers (Stella Artois $5.75 and Refuge IPA $6,50 - a bit much) and the Irish Nachos, made with potato chips,... More
