Irish hospitality, charming and fun. Great beer/whiskey selections. Not just trad. Irish fare. Interesting eclectic menu. Service and food were excellent. After a long day of driving our family loved it.

Scotch eggs are good. The benedictine with bread is also a wonderful appetizer. Great selection of beers, too. The fish is probably the best in the city. My kids love the veggie mash. Their desserts are all fantastic. I like the Guinness cake the best, and my husband likes their "sticky mess," but I can't remember what the menu actually... More

I went with my husband and mother-in-law to try several dishes for the first time recently, and we were impressed with everything we had! It's a very affordable place, considering how large the portion sizes are. The cottage pie is similar to a shepards pie, and was very good (and large- you could share it with another person). The bangerz... More

Went here for a birthday dinner. The service was impeccable and the food was great. The food arrived promptly and was as described. The appetizers were great. Will go back again. Highly recommend to all.

We stopped for lunch on our way back home to St. Louis and what a nice surprise. Having been to Ireland, as well as Irish pubs in Boston, Maine, Chicago, St. Louis, San Fancisco and Cape Cod I think it's safe to say I know what an Irish pub should look like, and this one certainly does. The owner, Michael... More

My sister raves about this restaurant so I accompanied her on her birthday. When I glanced at the menu, it seemed really authentic; maybe to authentic. I normally consider myself cultured but nothing sounded appealing once I read the menu. I went with a burger to be safe which was good. I write this to say, Irish food isn't necessarily... More
