It seems odd (to me at least) that the best brunch spot in Park Circle is an Irish bar, but I'm fine with it! Their menu all around is very good, but the brunch is particularly fine. The French toast is great, as is the Irish eggs Benedict. The place gets packed for soccer matches, EPL, MLS, and of course... More

Had a great lunch with Guinness beers in North Charleston! Server, Sarah was knowledgeable and very helpful with information on the neighborhood. Fish & Chips was delicious as well as the Shepherds Pie. Looked like a lot of locals eat there regularly. I'll visit again when I'm in town.

Nice Irish pub in North Charleston close to the neighborhood called Park Circle. I came here with friends on a Friday evening, we sat and we talked for more than an hour, while I had a bacon burger and a beer and my friends chicken fingers and a beer. Music was not too loud and we could enjoy talking. It's... More

Had to visit on Championship Sunday last week (Barclays Premier League Soccer) because they were the only place open at 9:30! We figured we would survive the limited food selections and get by with a simple breakfast/brunch, but wow...had one of the best omelets I've ever had. And that was before the bloodys and Guiness! Super fun bar, somewhat authentic... More

The feel is very authentic and I loved the beer selection, but the food could be more flavorful. I had the fish and chips, but it wasn't much better than the last Captain D's I had. Maybe some house-made sauce or something to jazz It up a little?

My first visit to this restaurant and WOW! I was very impressed with the food and beverage choices. My friends who are from the area raved about this place and it lived up to my expectations. I ordered the corn beef, cabbage and mash potatoes that were the real deal. My friends ordered fish and chips and the open face... More

I had the corned beef and cabbage. With the way the waitress raved about it, I was so excited to try it. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype. Very bland.

I visited Madra Rua on St Patricks Day. Around 4pm there was a crowd but I found a table. There was no host to seat me and the bartender said to seat myself which was fine with me. My server Mike was great! I was looking for a different kind of beer and he suggested the Crabbies Scottish Alcoholic Ginger... More

You don't have to be Irish to enjoy the atmosphere. Great little pub/restaurant, with some excellent food. Their lunch and dinner specials always bring out the best from the cook, and there is quite the variety. Anything from steak, Jalapeno Chicken, Lobster Bistro... and it goes on (but these are some of my favorites). Prices are great, quantity is great,... More

I read the some other reviews. From someone who is there probably more than what would be considered "normal", let me say this: 1. Now 100% non-smoking; 2. Lots of draft beer, no grocery beer; 3. Staff can be a little distant. If you want someone to chew your food for you, this isn't the place; 4. On the up... More
