You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. I was here with my boyfriend and, late afternoon, we were the only people in the place. What really disturbed me was how much attention Kendyal paid to my boyfriend. His beer wouldn't be empty and he'd get a brand new beer. Me...I had to ask a couple... More

I have never been to this place and reading the reviews it seems like it is usually better but they certainly didn't seem welcoming when I came in here. It was a Thursday evening and kinda dead and I met a friend here after she got off work. She wanted to try a different place for happy hour and this... More

Good Food, Good service, but it is an American Bar and Restaurant. They serve Guinness American style and they're menu and ordering styles are 100% American. They do have Irish music. I just love flogging Molly. Anyway, great place, just don't expect a real Irish Pub....;-)

We stopped in for lunch last weekend, taking a break from shopping. The bar had about 10 folks watching the games & drinking beers; there were only about 3 or 4 tables occupied in the back room. Folks were a mix of families, some older folks & young couples. the hamburger was darned good! And large. (The fries were nothing... More

Who doesn't like the idea of a fun night in an Irish pub? Well, this classic establishment in the heart of old Roseville sure fits the bill on a Saturday night. Our party of six called and they kindly saved a table for us. The wine list is limited, but there is plenty of beer and spirits to meet your... More

I had lunch here the other day. It was very good. The service is pleasant. My Shepherd's Pie was delicious and served hot. I try to eat here whenever I am out to lunch in downtown Roseville.

Boxing Donkey is always good for delicious pub comfort food. Besides the staples of a pub like fish and chips and Shepard's pie they have great buffalo macaroni and cheese. All of the portions are large and very filling so arrive hungry.
