Dined on a Monday night not so busy. No hostess at door but they were slow, understandable. Nice table very good menu, specials not offered had to ask ordered a bottle of wine brought one glass. Appetizers came no silverware or napkins. Got up asked for silverware when I found staff. Entrees served great pasta. All finished okay bad start.

Took the family for dinner and it was not worth the money spent. Very disappointed in the food and ho-hum service. The nachos were over-baked, the Ruben was bland and the sweet potato fries which I did not order were soggy and not good. Good place for maybe a beer but that is it. Hate to waste $$ on this...

I rewarding my little brother after he helped me do some mechanic work on my truck. He had just moved to the area and I didn't know any restaurants in the area but knew I wanted some fish. He suggested this place and I'm glad he did. The young lady hostess opened the door and welcomed us in and another... More

The hotel staff recommended this place, so I walked up there, not expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere (lots of wood, Irish historical pieces/renditions, brick, etc.) Very Irish-bar like. Good menu with lots of options, including some authentic Irish dishes, like Bangers & Mash. I opted for the fish tacos, which were delicious. I think I devoured... More

I am no expert on Irish cuisine. However, I have a good palate and know when food taste good. So, we always go there for their bangers and mash. Also, it is a cool restaurant with beautiful outdoor seating. I always see lots of people at the bar so I guess it is a great hangout place.

We went to this restaurant to celebrate my birthday although we did not let them know. Nice Irish pub with a boat (hooker) hanging from the ceiling. We had the Calamari for an appetizer. I had the tomato basil soup and my wife had a Caesar Salad. For our main entree we both had the fish and chips. All of... More
