We had a great time at this establishment and the food was some of the best we ever had. My wife got a cup of the New England Clam Chowder and I got the bowl-lucky me because mine came with a tasty fritter right in the middle of the bowl. The soup was outstanding, I will definitely come back just... More

Took forever to get wait staff, food took a long time to get to the table, was luke warm at best, and not very good. I mean, how can you screw up corned beef and cabbage?

Stopped in here for what we hoped would be a quick lunch Sunday afternoon. Items on the menu were not available ( turkey for the turkey cranberry sandwich.) .Food took forever to come, and was ok at best. The server recommended the potto salad side, but it wad awful. Tasted more of vinegar than potato. Portions were scanty, although prices... More

It is a neat and clean place. In the evening there are activities for those that are keeping track of pop culture. But if you are stopping by for food or a drink other than a draft beer you are in the wrong place. Service at the bar was quick but at a table it took work to be noticed.... More

Arrived at 530 on a Friday evening for dinner on the rooftop patio. Waitress continued to look at my husband and I and ignore us. After 20 minutes we went to the bar and ordered drinks. My diet cola was seltza. 30 minutes into our visit we again went to the bartender and ordered our food as the waitress was... More

The new open-air patio is nice but the service leaves much to be desired. At one point there was one bartender for 25 people - and it was slow . This nice area does not currently take debit or charge cards but does not inform customers of that until the tab is due. And, worse, Connecticut has a no-smoking policy... More

We've been here as a couple and with friends. It's always a good time! The food is delicious! We've tried the authentic bangers and mash, other entrees, sandwiches, fries, salads, and appetizers! All of it is encellent. The draft beer choices are plentiful if you enjoy beer. They also have a full bar! The waitstaff is friendly and generally attentive... More

From the moment we walked in we knew we'd be having the fish & chips. The place smelled great! All you can eat, $10. Great batter fried fish and peppered french fries. Cold beer.

Like the review by USA, this place could be great. The beer is is very good, and the food interesting. Our companions had meat loaf, the serving was large and easily split. We had a Reuben and a burger. The Reuben was very good, the burger average. The H and D fries very good, maybe the best part of the... More

Service was terrible. The place smells like sewage. It is a fake Irish bar. Takes forever to get food even when it isn't busy. Tried to give this place a few chances but every time I feel like I have wasted my money and left aggravated. Don't bother.
