Oh...my...gosh. Amazing food and lower prices than surrounding ho hum restaurants. Started with Irish soda bread with butter and apple butter. Delicious. My husband ordered bangers and mash, which he loved. I'm not usually a fan, but it was terrific. I ordered fish and chips which is one of their most popular dishes. Shepherds pie is a fave of most...

We stopped here to get out of a brief rain storm and find air conditioning while our 2 year old was sleeping and it definitely served its purpose for us as far as that goes. Our server was really good and there was live music that we found entertaining (Irish beer themed songs that had us laughing). My husband and... More

For burgers we normally go to Richters. For the same amount of money you can have a nice sit down experience. We're going back.

The Guinness Stew was great as well as the bread they give you with apple butter. I would recommend making reservations especially if you are going during a busy time of year.

My wife & I love this place and always eat here when we visit Universal, the menu has a great variety especially if you want a change from burgers and fries. They supply soda bread with all meals that is served warm with butter and an apple chutney which is really tasty. They have a good range of beers American... More

This place totally rocks. Every time I eat here it gets better. Best wings on earth. Keep trying to figure out why. I think they use tomato as there base. I am a geek foodie and always want to know how they do it! This one stumps me! Anyhow everything including the service always hits home. Well priced for the... More

The nice thing about a later lunch is the live man playing Irish music. Food was good and service was prompt. Loved the potato and onion appetizer. Everyone liked the buffalo wings as an appetizer also. My son really enjoyed the fish and chips with the rest in our party getting sandwiches. Good stop for some cold drinks and yummy... More

I found this pub while waiting for others to ride at Universal. It is a good place to have a beverage while waiting for others. The staff is attentive and polite. They provide fine service. The prices are a bit steep.

I really enjoyed what I tried here. The scotch eggs were soft and the corned beef sandwhich was nice. Washed down with a Guiness. Good stuff!
