Description: 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.

I first heard about this restaurant through all the coupon and city maps. Then my horse and carriage ride rode by there and I read the sign: Monday nights-50 cent wings. We had eaten a big lunch so we needed a light supper. There is a different special each night so it is worth checking out-especially if you use one... More

We had a very good meal here. Shrimp and grits was good but my son wished it was a bigger portion. Shrimp po-boy good. Sheppard pie good. Duck sandwich probably wrong choice for a teen who likes burgers. Good all around for families.

I love Irish food. I was so disappointed when I looked at the menu. I understand trying to cater to your location but c'mon you're and IRISH pub. If you think you're going to come here and order bangers and mash or rashers or Guinness stew think again. The service was nauseatingly slow. The food tasted good I just couldn't... More

I had the Irish Breakfast Burger and it was just amazing. It had house-cured bacon, fried green tomato, cheddar cheese and a fried egg in it. It came with some yummy chips as well. If you are into burgers, try this one. They had a pretty good selection of beer, they had about 20 on tap, and I especially liked... More

We were tired and hungry when we sat down for a late lunch at this restaurant. My husband suggested we try a local dish: shrimp and grits, and I reluctantly agreed, not relishing the thought of "grits".. It was delicious!! Highly recommend! Nice atmosphere too!

This pub was across the street from our hotel. The food is great. My mom and I ate here twice and we were not disappointed. It's conveniently located, reasonably priced and the staff was friendly and professional. Try the shrimp and grits!!

Went for lunch with a coupon that we endef up not using. I had tge Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer and my wife had the Crabcakes appetizer. Food was mediocre, the service not even so. Maybe that's why they push the beer so hard; I dunno.

Decided to take my mom here for lunch. Thought we might get some good Irish food. Instead it's mostly bar food. I had the Shrimp Po Boy and she got the chicken fingers.I will say the food was good and the service was really great. We also were there right when they opened, so it wasn't too busy. Not sure...

We've eaten here on past trips, but this time, it just wasn't very good. The Reuben was more bread than corned beef, and the beef was dry. The bookbinder sandwich doesn't come with an jus anymore, and we liked that much better than the cheese dip served with it now.
