This was a gem of a find while staying a few days in the area! Friendly staff, great beer on tap selection and the burger and fries were so good with large portions. We went off season, but it bar area was full and it is a fun atmosphere!

Best Irish pub ever. The walls are full of servicemen and women's patches, the bartender was so friendly and welcoming, and the food was awesome. The best Shepards pie I've ever had. The ambiance was just perfect. I will definitely go back.
