The beer battered fish here with the accompanying dill sauce is the best in town! It's a charming restaurant where you will hear Irish music being played as you dine.

A cold draft beer to go with outstanding Fish and Chips makes the day feel like Ireland on the Ohio River. The bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. A down=to=earth ambiance completes the experience.

Beer selection is great, food is great, hard to beat the fish and Chips, and a nice atmosphere. The location on Frankfort Ave is handy too, overall a great restaurant with an authentic Irish pub appeal.

This is definitely a neighborhood gem! If you go go on a weeknight when the local Irish are enjoying the food and drink. The food is exceptional, a full bar and super helpful wait staff. Normally the owner is there and walks around checking on people. A definite must go if your visiting!

As close as you can get to an Irish Pub in the Louisville. We tried several different appetizers and they were all outstanding. Get there early as parking is limited and the place fills up quickly.
