But don't just get their "wild snapper," order half and half fried fish and their HUGE fried shrimp .... so yummy! Their french fries are delicious as well! When we went there yesterday, they had a great rock band playing on the patio. We had a great time! Also, all of their food, especially their Irish dishes, are not to... More

Comfort food at it's finest! The kitchen is open until 10 on weeknights - there is patio seating, bar seating and a quaint little dining room. The soda bread is amazing! Currants and anise seed give it a unique flavor. Generous portions.

We stopped in for some drinks after a dinner at Roy's around the corner. We didn't eat so I can't comment. Big venue & I liked the open courtyard in the middle. We did have to wait a bit for service as they were fairly busy for a Friday night. Overall, just an average visit but I'd give it another... More

Good Food, beer, service. I loved the atmosphere -- reminded me of pubs I visited in Ireland. Great casual place for family, friends.

They really dont need a review as they are busy all the time, but its always good for an up date. Had lunch with family last week and all our meals were excellent. I tried the corn beef sandwich and it was the leanest I think I ever had. Delicious. Sister had the shrimp and other sister had baby lamb... More

This place has not changed much in the past 35 plus years. Good service and average food. It has gotten a little pricey. Cobb salad 15.00 , Louie salad 18.00. What always peeves me is when you are charged $3.00 for an iced tea. Limited children's menu but kids love the ice cream sundae that is included. Just a nice... More

We arrived for an early dinner and without a reservation and were pleased to be seated in the diningroom which is fitted-out in true Irish pub style and took us back to a previous trip to Ireland. We were greeted by a friendly server who hailed from Brighton, England and treated us to his "patter" . While the menu is... More

We went on a VERY SLOW night. The service was super friendly and pleasant, the atmosphere is great and the beer selection is good. The food (Wings, Pub Stew, Corned Beef) was just average. - I would go again, for the beer and the pub-atmosphere, but I'd have dinner first in one of the many outstanding restaurants in the area

Good Irish Pub. A bit on the high side (but it is Newport Beach) and no Reuben but overall good place. Food was good and staff was friendly. Went here twice.
