Home of Guinness Pie

With St.Patrick's Day coming this is the place to taste authentic Irish fare. The Guinness Pie is wonderful beef stew with Guinness Ale and a yummy crust.

I always enjoy this restaurant. There's a happy buzz. The bar is usually very busy. If you have a private gathering, there are many small rooms you might arrange. The Guinness Pie is remarkable- old fashioned beef stew with a flaky puff pastry top. I usually take half home.

This an upscale Irish pub. It is always packed, with a line. It is great for groups. The Irish standards are well handled here, but if you happen to want, say, fried clams, well, they are good here! The prices are fair.

New Years Eve dinner with family. Started off with creamy Butternut bisque. Then the pork chop for the entrée. The food was delicious! If you don't like your meal, they are quick to refund your money. I was impressed with the service.

I always enjoyed going here. The food is great and plentiful, the owners are friendly and kind. There is a lot of good atmosphere here. Great place to take the family, hang out with a bunch of friends or meet up with co-workers. I would recommend getting their shepard's pie and trying the Scottish eggs appetizer.

It's like walking into a pub in Dublin Ireland. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, excellent food and of course grab a pint of Guinness!
