Great food, nice place.

Went with a group after just arriving to town for a party later that eve. We wanted a late lunch and drinks before the evening, so it was empty (3pm) and the staff was busy preparing for the assumed Friday after work crowds.

For me, this is the best Irish pub in Charlotte. The staff (bartenders) are very friendly and quick with a joke. Also, they remember repeat customers so you always feel welcome and at home. And, most importantly, they pour an outstanding Guinness!

This and RiRa hold the Irish title in mid town Charlotte. RiRa has better furnishings. Connolly's seems to have a younger and a more fun crowd. Can't go wrong either place

Standard Irish pub - Guinness and Harp on tap, good music- pretty tame crowd of twenty-something's and a few of us 'elders' - 30's-40's. One downfall is the single bathroom. Such a cliché to wait in a long line at the ladies room! Overall, good place to enjoy a drink and people-watch.

We happened to have a few nights out at this wonderful pub. It has a certain rustic charm and serves a wonderful pint of Guiness. It is a drinks only pub and it reminds me of the pubs in Dublin as it has a great atmosphere while not being trendy in anyway. We had Irish barmen serve us which added... More

We stopped in and had a beer and it was very good. Dark inside but great atmosphere. There is an outside area too but it was very warm outside. Nice selection of beers! Worth a stop.

Great place in Charlotte uptown area to relax with a "pint" of your favorite brew. Staff is awesome, unlike most places in uptown they actually pay attention to their customers/guests. Make sure you stop here every time you're in Uptown/downtown Charlotte.

After a seeing War Horse at the Blumenthal a short walk across the street to one of the best pubs in Charlotte. It offers some great brew and some of the best corned beef you will find unless you go to NYC or Boston! Service was good but it was also very crowded so U deal with it and drink... More
