After working in the restaurant business for many years, Tommy opened his first restaurant in 1984. He has made his name by becoming one of Charleston's favorite local spots to serve up Lowcountry specialties such as shrimp and grits and fish and chips. Tommy runs the type of family-oriented establishment where people know their children are as welcome as they are. In fact, a children's menu has been specially prepared for "little leprechauns." In the months following Hurricane Hugo, Tommy made numerous trips to Ireland collecting exquisite antique mirrors and authentic Irish memorabilia that adorn his restaurant. He scoured the countryside and brought every pub mirror he could find. He laughs wryly about his massive shipping bills. The results are worth all his effort. The mirrors cast rich reflections, making the restaurant warm and inviting. Some mirrors are ornately detailed while others shimmer with simple elegance. You'll swear you've been transported to a pub shrouded in antiquity in Ireland's rambling countryside.The restaurant would not be complete without the sounds of Ireland. The background music is perfect. In the pub and bar area the "live" sounds of Ireland can be heard every Wednesday through Sunday nights. You can sit back and listen or join in singing an Irish-American sing-along. Tommy says it is wonderful to see whole families getting in on the fun at one table while at another sits a couple on a date and at yet another sits someone's grandparents remembering and laughing.

This is always one of our choices to eat in Charleston... great food... live bands in the evening. Staff is really nice and they WILL find a place for you to sit ASAP when it is crowded. It is right near the Market just a short walk from the horse carriage stations and the Doubletree Hotel. Very casual atmosphere and... More

Loved the atmosphere of the restaurant. Very nice menu of Irish dishes. The shepards pie is to die for. My husband ordered a hamburger and it was so big he couldn't eat it all. Reasonably priced and delicious food.

We went to their Sunday Brunch. The waitress less than tuned in with really slow service and not very helpful with menu questions. The food was good. My Low Country Boil was good but crab legs were pretty much like pencils.

Great place to stop off for lunch while exploring the historic district. The service and food were really good. The pub has a fireplace which was really nice on this cold Feb. day.

This place is an Irish themed bar in the Market street area of Charleston. In the past years, I have been several times here for drinks and it has kept the same lively atmosphere that makes you go back. I also ate here a few times and food is generally good as is service. Bartenders are quite fast even on... More

The crab cakes were DELICIOUS. We enjoyed a band playing and it has great atmosphere. The only bad thing was the service. From the time we walked in the door we were invisible to our waitress. When it came time to pay, we asked 4 times for our check, we finally found our waitress in the back of the restaurant... More

We stayed at the hotel and walked right out and into this pub. Very friendly staff and good beer selection. Great corned beef egg rolls with spicy mustard - tasty!

We stopped here on a cold day hoping for a warm Irish atmosphere for lunch. We were seated outside near the plastic curtains on the patio and after freezing from the wind blowing in asked to be moved to a warmer spot. We were moved across the patio area to a booth that was equally as cold but minus the... More

What a pleasant surprise this brunch was! They have $1.00 Mimosas and a wide variety of choices on the menu. The Reuben omelet was delicious, filled with flavorful and tender corned beef. A must try when you are in the area. They have live music at night.
