They have some super specials - I had the fish n chips at half off, some special deal of the day, and thought it was great! Food also tasted very good, and service was friendly and nice.

We enjoyed our dining companions, but the dining experience was just okay. Our server was very attentive--when he was there. Timing was a big issue. We got our appetizers--10 minutes later, the plates. Beers arrived after the plates. Food was basic pub fare, so no problem there. Busy Saturday night, so some slack, but would try somewhere else before returning.

Our football (soccer) team meets here frequently for a pint. They have a nice beer selection and the service is always great. We recently met for brunch there and really enjoyed the buffet with made to order omelets. Brandi helped us reserve a room for our group. She is professional, friendly, and easy to work with.

the view and decor here is great and the service is too. The menu featured a great many drink choices and I only wish we had had more time to come back to try them. There is a very nice outdoor area on the waterway. The story behind the bar is heartwarming. Yes, there really was a Goose's Acre in... More

Some friends and I recently went here for free bingo on Thursday night. They run it every Thursday night and give away sponsored beer mugs, signs, and even Texan's tickets. The service sucked this time, but was much better when we moved outside.They run a reverse happy hour starting at 9 for drinks and 10 for food. The place was... More

This Irish pub had a very good selection of draft beers and the Cedar Plank Roast Salmon was outstanding. The Sheperds Pie was made with Sirloin not hamburg....the chix mac and cheese was wonderful...if you are looking for a good place to eat in the woodlands give this place a try..

This is the worst Irish pub I've even seen in the US. They didn't want to broadcast Manchester United - Chelsea (a top game), not even on 1 tv of all tv's they have. Even after asking they gave me a 'no'. ALL the tv's were reserved for the NFL, while there was nobody in the pub!! They don't deserve... More

This place does have some good food and it get's packed in here on the weekends pretty quickly. Your best bet is to get here early and hang out.

This place has come up with half price on chicken wings and pizzas during the week days, of course not as cheap as those in Houston like 10 cents Tuesdays but wings still affordable. The place is super clean including the restrooms with plenty of soap and paper towels. Customer service is great and the evenings are quiet , you... More
