Good food (bad beer-it is UT-3.2 draft)

Sort of an English type pub but need to get an appit for bangers and mash. As an app turned out to be a little on short side. Great service and very personable

I am writing this review based on one visit in December. The experience started out very rocky as the hostess snapped, Come This Way! We were taken to the back room where she threw the four menus at the table, turned and walked away. We were just about ready to leave when a very polite and well trained waiter helped... More

So far the food has been tasty. A little on the expensive side. Nice quiet bar in the back. Nice choice of both beverages and food.

We love this place. Been coming here since they opened. Good menu with a variety of Irish theme foods and good old hamburgers Close the Layton convention center. Friendly service with friendly banter I like their buffalo Shepard pie though I suspect bison are not roaming the green Irish hills

The fish was very good the chips were actually potato chips (thin wafers deep-fried) which is not what I would expect in an Irish-style pub. There was a fire in the fireplace and the atmosphere did remind me of a pub. We will probably return.

The food and drink selection was good. The service seemed slow however our waitress was training someone new so that may have been why. Friendly environment with large tables for big groups.

My hubby and I stopped by to wind down and spend some time together. I ordered the Finn skins and hubby ordered the corn beef and cabbage soup. The atmosphere is comfortable and our server was funny. We were in there once before and they knew we were in a rush to get to a late appointment, they accommodated us... More
