This place is in an old building off the square. It serves decent food. Pub stuff. I had a good salmon dish and my friend a steak. There are good choices on the menu and the bar has good drinks. What I did not like is the atmosphere. They have the dirty bills all around. Cheap crappy seating on the... More

Didn't know what to think when we stopped in this past weekend but I was quickly impressed by the staff, beer selection and menu. Great burgers! The other items looked delicious as well. Busy on a Saturday lunch but taken care of the entire time.

We had such high hopes for this place, but were not really impressed worth the service at all. It was a full 10 minutes at least before we were even acknowledged, even though he walked past us several times. Then another girl pretty much brought us everything we ordered, and even extra things we asked for. Our server would literally... More

My husband and I ate here on our overnight trip to Dahlonega. We had eaten here on our last trip a few years ago and it was just OK, but we wanted to try it again and it was AMAZING. The food came out fast and was great. I had the chicken salad with onion rings and my husband had... More

I didn't eat here but enjoyed a Guinness or two in the bar area downstairs. Enjoyable and authentic. I was hoping to make it back for some shepherd's pie, but that will have to wait till next year. I will definitely spend more time here on that trip.

We visited today for lunch, the atmosphere and dark wood in the bar definitely gives the Irish feel. The food was good but not particularly Irish, only a hand full of dishes. Fish was good, some hand cut chips(fries) would have made it even better! We would visit again though.

The food was decent Irish fare. Large portions. I got a dirty martini with the pickled okra, and then a second one. The food filled us up sufficiently, the alcohol did its job. The live music was a great band for the crowd (until they turned on me and started playing country music). The place was crowded. I liked the... More

We were so disappointed last year when they closed down but on a recent visit back after a kayak trip we stopped by and they were open. Same great menu. We sat out on the back patio and with the fans going and umbrella up it was very pleasant even in the heat of the day. I ordered the fish... More
