Good choice

If you're into traditional beer and burgers this is a good choice. Great burgers, Reuben's and Irish fare. Normal pub atmosphere.

Ate there TWICE ( lunch & dinner ) before and after visiting the Marblehead Lighthouse. Piping hot food and huge selection of Irish-ethnic classics: boxty, shepherd's pie, bangers and of course, corned beef and cabbage. Been there at least six times now when traveling and seldom consider an alternate establishment.

We stopped for a few drinks and possibly dinner after a long drive. The bar staff was excellent, quick service engaging, seemed to be having fun. Talked with a few locals of all ages at the bar, and they were very nice and willing to point out the town's better places. Folks in the dining room seemed to be having... More

Hostess needs some lessons in tact. Waitress was more than friendly and helpful. Food was very good though slightly above average in cost.

A perfect gathering place for friends seeking the ambiance and offerings of an Irish pub. The Oktoberfest beer was crisp and cold. The Irish stew was beyond expectations with tender morsels of beef and a savory gravy. The obligatory TV's catered to the craving of OSU fans, delighted to view another victory. Our group of 10 enjoyed the luck of... More

They have a wicked cheese plate appetizer. The pub toastie is cheesy delight, and the homemade soups make a great comfort meal.

Good is really greasy. Couldn't eat the food I ordered (fish) it was over priced and greasy and very little fish under three breading. Potatoes were just as bad. For all this we paid $40 for two of us. Has better meal at McDonalds.

Nice place! We stopped for lunch and left full. The food was very good and authentic Irish. Prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. Would visit again, maybe next time for some drinks!
