Good Irish pub

Great place to sit and relax. It has sports all over the bar (tv's everywhere😀), good beer, good food, what more do you need! Great for groups or on your own.

I'm not a big fan of Irish food so I ordered the southside burger which was very good. The thing I would change is the pulled pork was a little dry some bbq sauce would make it better. We also ordered willies calamari which didn't stand a chance cleaned the plate. We usually go traditional but it was delicious. Vennela... More

This Irish restaurant is amazing. The food is excellent with a lot of traditional Irish favorites. We held my son's 50th birthday celebration in The Cottage room. The service was phenomenal, the food fantastic, and the presentation of the meal was superior. From the fish and chips, Shepard's pie, to the burgers and Hangar steak. The restaurant was very well...

I would give this place 5 stars only if the Wi-Fi was up to date. Customers can not get it for whatever reason. They really need to upgrade theirs we've skipped this place for lunch many times cause our crew all want to check emails and such while on their break. So please please please update your wifi so customers... More

Been here several times. Very nice sports pub- flatscreen televisions every where you look, with all types of sports on. Nice bar area. Good ambience and atmosphere. On some nights, bands come in to play. Decent food, but very good burgers.

If their Wi-Fi actually worked I'd give a much better rating. Place really needs to get that updated. Everyone is on their phones these days and kids on all types of gaming systems.

Stopped here after an outdoor concert last Sunday, ordered the black bean burger, which was delish, served with coleslaw or fries. The server was very friendly and helpful, the pricing is good. Very nice ambience, highly recommend.

Went there for the first today with my Husband for dinner. Service was very slow, once food came out, server never asked us if all was well with our food. The fries were stale both regular and sweet potatoe fries. Never got my drink refilled until I was all finished eating my meal. Server was no where to be found.... More

I gave the 'New Cryan's' two tries and was disappointed both times. Let mme go through the list. Ambiance: Noisy, overly cooled down by AC, dark (anything to hide?) and, well, just bla. Service: ok, I guess. Nothing sticks out either way. Drinks: Standard fare, if somewhat pricy. Food: below average. Burgers are cooked to whatever temperature the cooks feels... More
