Fun place with good beer!

We stopped by after dinner for drinks. The service was great and it was a fun place to hang out. It was a good place to be able to have a conversation. I can't comment on the food or choices. Maybe next time!

Stopped here for a light lunch and we walked out of there filled to the gill!! We can't ever say no to beer cheese soup and theirs was delicious -- just the right amount of kick. Bloody Mary's were so-so, but there was a great choice of beers.

I like this place. No other place like in Marquette, food and service have been consistently good for both lunch and dinner.

We have eaten, drank and danced here. Nice casual menu. More of a mixed crowd drinking bar/club on the weekend nights. Good for lunch. Sometimes more of a college crowd at night. But they behave. Good for this old fart checking the college cuties. lol.

We had the Scottish eggs for an appetizer and they were delicious. My husband had a corned beef sandwich, he said was very good and I had fish & chips. The fish was very tasty but a little soggy on the bottom. But all in all, it was a good lunch and I would go back.

After spending 17 plus years away, this bar has a great atmosphere after 10pm. Drinks were good and reasonably priced. 7

The food was horrible and this is after they have promoted a revamped menu. They would be better off pandering to the drinkers and offering only chips, pretzels and peanuts. When three people with three different orders just push their food around the plate and cannot get a decent bite from anything then that is bad. Our money and time... More

Nice little Irish spot to have a pint, a sandwich and good service! Was a perfect blend of all three during my visit. Family friendly within walking distance if downtown hot spots. Definitely recommend it!

It's been awhile, but friends and I had lunch there. The food was good, you could get a beer, and it had a fun atmosphere even at lunch. We had a toddler with us and it was fine.

This was our second trip here. I did not review last time but enjoyed it so thought I should review. Our server was very nice but a bit on the "low key" side. I had the Shepherd's pie which was good and my husband had a corned beef sandwich ( he enjoyed his also). Price wise... We each enjoyed two... More
