As soon as you walk in the atmosphere grabs you, am I really in Fort Wayne? I am not a beer drinker but the rest of the group was buzzing about the beers available.

Good menu selection of Irish food and quite a long list of beer offerings. Bangers and mash, fish and chips, and shepherd's pie are all good. Save some room for the beer. Large bar in the front, with a family entrance hidden in the alley behind the building if your children aren't drinking.

Love the food, atmosphere, and beer! A regular stop for us and a place we bring guests. A great reason to come downtown!

The ambiance was awesome -- felt just like we were in Ireland. Wonderful Irish music and of course excellent food and drinks. We ate with younger children, so had to enter through the back as this is a bar. I believe that family hours end at 8:00 p.m. Can't wait to visit again!

Found this unexpectedly, and my husband had the Shepherds Pie, and I had the yellow fin tuna salad. Both absolutely FANTASTIC!! He said his was the best he has ever had. Mine had a fantastic presentation and taste. Plan to visit again. Atmosphere was relaxing and not rushed. Nice change!

This is an authentic rendition of Ireland. Scott the owner has been to Ireland numerous times and he knows it like the back of his hand. Most of the dishes are straight from Ireland as is the decor. I believe all imported from Ireland. It does not get any more authentic.

They have a huge variety of beers on tap. The staff is very knowledgeable about guiding you to a beer you'll like. Traditional Irish foods. Great soups. Reasonably price. Entertainment many nights.
