There are many "irish" pubs in the US but very few of them bring to mind anything of Ireland. This place has the decor and the food down. Really enjoyed having lunch and a pint here. The outdoor seating area is lovely but not quite shady enough for the truly hot days of summer. Will definitely go back if I... More

Having never been to Peoria, & meeting a long time friend from this area, he picked this "PUB" to meet for lunch. It was delightful in every way !! The location is in middle of the historic district, & the building has a great story itself. For tourists who want to absorb the 20th Century PEORIA, with great local favorites... More

I've been here a number of times, for business, pleasure, parties, events. Most of the food is consistanly good, the guinness beef sandwich is my fave, spicy and tasty. A bit short on the beef. All the other Irish bar choices are here too. Beers are good, nice options, though nothing in particular draws me here for beer. Can be... More

Went for drinks. Lucky enough to get seats at bar. Matt the bartender. Hardest working guy in Peoria. Friendly and good spirited. The beer was nice and cold I will definitely go here again.

We visit here every time we're in town! So, we've eaten lunch here quite a bit. (Haven't been here for dinner) The service is always good. The food has never disappointed us. My hubby always gets traditional Irish fare, while the kids and I get sandwiches or burgers. It's a fun place with lots of memorabilia to look at.

Charming location--especially when it's nice out and dining on the patio is an option. Great beer selection. I have eaten here several times and find the food to be mediocre, at best. Would dine somewhere else and go here for drinks and atmosphere.

We have eaten here a couple of times when we are in Peoria. We enjoy the variety on the menu and the food is good without being expensive. It's a nice change for us instead of the usual American bar food.
