Great location but it gets worse from there

After an afternoon of sightseeing and shopping, we were looking for a relaxing dinner spot. The view from the patio helped us choose to dine here. After we were seated and provided menus, a server arrived and we ordered the drink special, a simple tap beer. We got a bottle of beer but she said she... read more

Had a very wonderful, cheerful and fun waitress named Devan. She joked right along with me and added so much to the meal. for me the wait... More

The service was horrible. We were there for over two hours and 75% of that time was waiting, waiting and waiting. The food was okay only. The only good thing was the view and it was a beautiful day. Won't be back.

This is a small restaurant bar with Irish food and a nice selection of Irish whiskey. The size give a feeling of a small town bar and the staff is very friendly. I see other reviews of the service.. I have been there 10 times in the last 6 months and haven't really noticed any major issues. If you are... More

The weather was perfect along with the food and live music. Never did I have to wait or wonder when my next drink was coming. Setting out on the deck and eating really great food while listening to amazing local Irish folk band play was an epic delight for my wife and I.

We have been there in the past and it was OK (3 stars), but last time was our last time. We got there early to get a good spot for the musicians. It wasn't very crowded. It took about 10 minutes for the waitress to notice us, another 15 before she got around to taking our food order, and 40... More

My group of 6 adults and 4 children were trying to find a lunch spot and thought the large deck at Charlie's would be a great choice. However, due to the impending rain the deck hostess thought it best to check out the covered portion outside of Charlie's Pub. She said we could just go over and seat ourselves, but... More

The view of the river was amazing. We enjoyed lunch and a perfect girls afternoon. The food was decent. The menu had a large selection of salads, sandwiches and traditional Irish food.
