Stopped here today for lunch and managed to snag a nice outdoor table. What a great find! Had the Limerick burger and my wife, the cucumber sandwich. The fries that came with both were delicious! Great service too! Will definitely return for the pub fare!

Great atmosphere, good food, nice staff and great beer selection. Really good burgers stand out. Often has live music too. Nice place to visit in winter ....and summer out on deck. Right near Bristol harbor.

My family and I stopped by for lunch after a college visit and tour of RWU. The waitstaff were very friendly and the food was great! We would definitely go back!

food was great but the highlight of the meal was the tall good looking silver fox of a bouncer. the waitstaff was very friendly and the manager Richie was exceptional. the food was cooked to perfection and the Guiness was fantastic. someone named rabbit was our waiter and I think his name is because he works so quickly.
