We tried the sliders. You get 4 per order. We had an order of the pulled pork and an order of the pot roast. Pulled pork was sweet and delicious, and the pot roast was tender and tasty. Restroom was nicest in any restaurant in Durango.

My husband and I are both EXTREMELY reticent to send food back to the kitchen because both of us are able to empathize in cases of an overwhelmed kitchen, a new menu, a new staff, but tonight to have TWO dishes, not one, come back RAW – cold and raw – I don’t think I even have another memory of...

Bangers and Mash - Mash was good however the Sausage is horrible. Dry and crumbling on the inside. Pot pie was good, but not as good as Marie Calendars from the frozen section Tried to order beer off the menu - didn't have most of what was listed. Server apologized and said their menu was horribly out of date. Should... More

Stop by and enjoy a pint of Ska Beer and enjoy some fish and chips. Hands down best fish and chips in the U.S. (I have enjoyed this fare in the UK). The service is impeccable.bbthis is on Main Street, and you can walk easily any where.

I try fish and chips everywhere I go and this was one of the best I've had in a long time. It was crisp and tender with a good size portion of fish. The chips were traditional style, larger, tarter sauce tangy and the slaw tasty and the Guinness was fresh. They also serve a traditional Irish breakfast at any... More

If you enjoy an authentic Irish pub atmosphere with great fish and chips you'll love it here. If you like bargains try Monday when fish and chips are on special. If you don't have a ferocious appetite there's enough to share. Better yet go during happy hour when brews are $3. Other days have food specials too.

The beer-battered fish 'n' chips were quite yummy! Perfect amount of batter to fish ratio. The accompanying cole slaw had a clean slaw dressing so you can taste the cabbage--perfection! My friend had a Kahlua and Cream to drink and she said it was one of the best she's tasted. Wait staff are fun and friendly. The Irish decor is... More

I was expecting a bit more of an "Irish flavor" to their menu options, but it's a nice place in the heart of downtown Durango. Friendly service and a cozy environment with a variety of seating options. Good fish and chips, especially the chips!

My husband had the Fish and Chips and was very pleased. The portion of fish was very generous and the fish was thick and moist. I had the Shepherd 'sPie and was not disappointed. It also was a large serving with a lot of great flavor. Atmosphere was friendly and seemed to be a lot of locals eating. It was... More
