We happened upon this restaurant totally by accident. We were looking for some place to eat on a trip. I enjoy a good bar setting and this place looked inviting all open aired and seating close to the street. It was a fairly busy night there so we opted to give it a try. I enjoyed the beer options, but... More

Dingy atmosphere, dirty tables and the first time eve I had shepherds pie with chili seasoning. Yuk! Did try mac n cheese and that was good. Only highlight was a great server unfortunately she was the only server and it was crowded.

The food is good, lots of bar choices. If you like restaurants where the staff is happy and chatty, this is not the place for you. There are a few small tables outside, but we were a larger party. We were seated quickly, there were a lot of tables occupied watching soccer. We didn't have any problems with our server.... More

The "adult" Mac and Cheese tasted like a watered down version of Kraft from a box..no flavor at all. salads were good although the "cusabi" ranch seemed to be just ranch. Our waitress, who seemed to be the only one working last night, was very sweet and did a fantastic job juggling all of her tables!

This is a cozy Irish pub. They have great Irish food as well as regular food. We have been there twice. The Irish stew, boxtys, and shepherds pie were delicious. The turkey sandwich was very good too. The staff is very nice and helpful. The only thing is that the Ladies room could use some help.

We stopped in here for dinner as our group arrived late form the airport. Decent food but horrible service. Twice we had to get up and find the server to request drink refills and the check. I would go back only for a drink at the bar.

A group of 6 females enjoyed a very nice lunch here on a beautiful October Saturday. Service was excellent. Everyone had different beers, except me. They all raved about their beers. I had unsweetened iced tea, which was delicious. The waitress was very attentive and gave me multiple refills, which I appreciated. Most of our group had the soup salad... More

Get crazy with their DJ and the youngings dancing around, trying to make drunk hook ups. The servers were friendly and the drinks quenched my thirst.

I frequent this restaurant & bar throughout the year, from summer to winter, it’s always a great spot to stop and get a beer, meet with friends, or grab a quick bite. Staff is very friendly, and the beer is always cold! No complaints! Definitely worth the visit!
