Great meal with an Awesome Atmosphere

Had a great meal with a few friends on a Wednesday night...wasn't expecting it to fill up for a Wednesday night, but it was so lively! I had the fish and chips and such a reasonable price and was a nice portion size. The fish was served very hot and the breading on the fish wasn't too thick. The... read more

Went on a Sunday afternoon. Not too crowded or noisy (as I've read it could be). This is simply a wonderful Irish Pub. I've been to some great English Pubs in England and this one rivals any I've been to. I love the county banners and references to "real" football (soccer). Being it was our first time here, we went... More

Fish * chips feast! Unless you're a burger fan....all the burgers are good. Unless you feel like a real trad dish like the nice,toasty shepherd's pie. Tell folks who aren't Irish you've had Bubble and Squeak. Watch their faces deal with that. It's salty mashed potatoes and cheese,like a double helping of twice baked potatoes in a casserole dish.

This is a great Irish Pub in an awesome neighborhood. It is LOUD which is good if you have kids (you can't hear them scream!). I wish the service was a bit more on point but the good is great.

Having gotten hooked on good pub food during a recent visit to London (note my reviews of The Windmill and The Mitre), I have been challenged trying to find a place reminiscent of those cozy old London pubs (I know, I know, this is Irish not British, and the difference is noted in the absence of Steak & Kidney pie)....

I had the fish and chips, the fish was really good. The fries were discounting for a place that tries to be an Irish bar. Good service though, friendly people.
