Service took forever. The food was really not that great for what we had heard about the restaurant. Great beer selection and my husband really liked his wings (it was 10 for $5 day). The kids were happy with their meal as well. For what it was I would have expected quicker service (hello?! you could sell more beer that... More

The food was excellent. Fish and chips - Wow! Next time? Shepherd's pie. The place was jammed with customers mid-afternoon - a good sign. My wife had the fried chicken salad - it looked great. Very nice experience.

Went for dinner. It was fun and the food was great. Everything you would expect from an Irish Pub. We had Crab Cake Balls, Shepherds Pie, and a Reuben Sandwich. All very good.

Christine is a great bar tender and makes a mean Irish coffee. Very attentive and kind to the kids when they showed up in need of water. Fun atmosphere.

They kind of look at you funny if you don't order beer. I had shrimp and grits and they were only OK. You couldn't take a bite without getting the skin of a tomato with it. Really runny too. My husband had fish and chips all you can eat and he didn't get get a second helping. That should speak... More

Our driver recommended this place. It was average. If I was in some suburb, it would be ok. We were in Charleston, a foodie town, so I would skip this place.
