We walked to the pub from Lighthouse Place, it wasn't crowded and we were not rushed. We had a great appetizer of fries with onions and bacon. For the entrée we had Burgers and Rubens. The Rubens were on a light rye instead of the traditional dark rye. The food was just o.k.

Really liked the food like always, however, the service on this occasion was very disappointing. The server was not friendly. Asked for dipping sauce and never arrived. When she asked how everything was, we mentioned that we did not receive the sauce. Her response...well, I put the request into the kitchen, but I guess they never did it! Well, as... More

The food is good. It is usually quiet enough that you can hear each other over dinner. We like the Irish selections and the fact that you can get something for a vegetarian here. The staff is always friendly.

When we arrived, the place wasn't very crowded, yet they sat my husband and myself in a room with 8 very LOUD ladies. I didn't mind that much but it bugged the husband. They could have put us in a different room. The service was slow and my husband ordered a hot corned beef sandwich. By hot, we thought that... More

We chose this restaurant as it was close to the outlet mall and had an outdoor patio. The patio was scruffy but pleasant enough and shady to sit outside in the warm weather. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was so-so. We had a portobello mushroom on ciabatta with fries and a burger. Both were ok - nothing fancy... More

I'm a local and go here a couple times a year in all kinds of weather but what usually draws me in is the patio. I love to eat outside and not enough places in the area offer outdoor seating (I don't count sitting on a narrow sidewalk next to a busy street as "outdoor seating"). Their patio is large,... More

Good food, but it took forever (probably about 40 minutes) to get to the table. It wasn't busy either. We ordered a burger, shepherd's pie, and an appetizer of fries. Our appetizer actually came about 5 minutes after we started our entrees. Our waitress, who looked like she was about 16, never checked on us or refilled our drinks the... More

I eat here EVERY year when I do my annual shopping trip to the outlet mall. The food is always good, it's locally owned, and they have actual Irishmen come over every summer as servers. If you sign up to be a VIP at the mall, you can get a coupon for a free app or dessert! Can't beat that!... More

I went here with an out of town guest just hoping it didn't measure up to some of the reviews. I figured if we were treated poorly we could just leave and go to one of the many restaurants in the area. I really was hesitant and warmed my guest (from Italy) that we may indeed leave before we ever... More

The atmosphere was cozy and warm. Any places that has Smithwicks on tap is good with me, add bangers and mash and we're golden. The staff was friendly and attentive and the regular crowd was friendly. I would recommend this establishment to anyone passing through or coming to shop the outlets.
