The bar tenders and wait staff are great. Very friendly. The place is small, but the atmosphere is great. There is a nice beer selection, and I've enjoyed everything I've eaten there. You have to try their homemade chips with honey mustard, or their BBQ Chicken Rumaki. Both are delicious!

Stopped for lunch, and the service was awesome. Quick to sit, and waitress was very quick. Was amazed how fast the food was coming out of the kitchen. Value was excellent.

The previous reviewers really don't know an Irish Pub if it stepped on them - take this from an ex-pat. Beer selection was good, a couple of British and Scottish ales in there but whose counting. Food a disaster "Fish and Chips" should have known not to ask, got fish which was good but then at the bottom of the... More

Loved the stucco look from outside. Inside had a definite rustic pub feel. Overall enjoyed the unique menu items that you can't get at most restaurants. Excellent escape from the ordinary.

my husband and I ate here for an early supper before going to a concert at Darien Lake. Great food and beer variety. Super quick service. We will go back when in Batavia again!

When I worked in a local business, we gathered here after work every few weeks to hang out. Everything about it is great. The selections are above average for Western NY. The quality of the service is great. Quick and efficient. The food is acceptable but to me that is secondary to everything else.

Stopped by tonight because of the rating. One of the worse dining experiences I've had! The waitress was great and the food came out quick. The food - was something else. My son and I had the lamb stew. Very bland. Adding lots of salt & pepper didn't do any good. The wife's reuben was one of the worse she's... More

What a neat place! My husband and I tried the reuben's at the suggestion of our server. Very good idea, as they were fantastic. The perfect meld of meat, swiss cheese, sauerkraut and TI dressing. Yummy. My son tried the sheppard's pie and as advertised, he couldn't put it all away. Our Guinness was delivered with a perfect shamrock on... More

Excellent service, excellent food, good price, entire family had good meals, portion sizes were good as well. The place had this warm, inviting feeling. I would definitely eat here again and recommend this to anyone driving by Batavia.
