Irish dinner

We went there for a special event dinner...a lecture about the potato famine and a three course meal. Both were very good. They will do it two more times this spring. We have dined there before and the food and service are always very good.

Not into the food- not bad but not great. The service is okay. I have been there 8 times over the course of 5 years. There are regulars and locals who love it.

A family gathering of 20 (including 5 youngsters) recently had dinner at this restaurant. Our waiter Liam was the highlight of our meal. He dealt with a large group in a professional and friendly manner. People arrived at different times. But Liam had no problems dealing with drink, appetizer and food orders, even making sure the children all had what... More

I passed this restaurant many times thinking that it was just a bar. Fortunately I discovered that it is also a nice Irish pub-style restaurant. It apparently has a lively bar atmosphere, but as a family we did not experience that. Having visited Ireland I was anxious to experience the food. My husband greatly enjoyed his shepherd's pie, which we... More

We stopped in for dinner on Friday night around 8 on our way to the beach. It was very busy and we had a 30 minute wait. I've driven past here numerous times and wanted to stop in but haven't til now. The décor is very rustic and reminiscent of a real Irish Pub (we were in Ireland last summer... More

We came here to hear a favorite band, not having been here before. We were very pleasantly surprised by this pub and will be back. The dinner entrees were delicious, hearty and moderately priced. I had the lamb stew. The lamb was so tender and flavorful. My wife had the pot roast and it, too, was delicious and tender. Their... More

Different, delicious , moderately priced food with a comfortable atmosphere. Ill return. The vegetarian boxy as well as ossabucca is a must. Don't forget to order extra soda bread that's the most addicting item on the menu.

Second time had the pot roast, very good, server.... well I won’t hold that against the restaurant, bit of an attitude. Sitting there watching the food come out, can't wait... More
