Found our selves in the area, read some reviews and recommendations and decided to give them a try. Service was good, atmosphere was nice and the prices seemed ok. We ordered drinks, an appetizer and the Shepherds Pie. We told the waitress we were going to split it. When she brought out the Shepherds Pie is was presented well. They... More

I really enjoy coming here for their cheese platters and beer. They do not have a great deal of selections for vegetarians however, so I do not go here as much for dinner.

A group of us took our daughters here as they wanted to sit in one of the booths that are dressed up to be cute little store fronts.The wait staff became irritated because with our girls for laughing a bit too much (and loudly) and made them move (they are teenage girls...). I was a bit disappointed that they were... More

Wonderful decor and great food. The decor was wonderful- something interesting to look at everywhere you turned. Attentive wait staff and very prompt service. Two of us had the fish fry, one a steak and one the roast pork and no one was disappointed. Nor could we eat everything on our plates! Good value for the money.

It is like eating with friends, the food is wonderful and reasonably priced. Cod cakes, Irish stew, fish, steak and the best reuben sandwich ever. Come with enough time to sit at the bar and strike up a conversation with most anyone. We still find something new that Bernie or Aelred has hidden away in some cute little spot every... More

Was there just last week and this is a little taste of Ireland in Oconomowoc, WI! The food was good and their Irish whiskey selection was quite the pleasant surprise. We were also delighted by the Irish music that was provided by the random musicians that wandered in and out. My friend from Ireland said that it reminded her of... More

The Pub has interesting decor with white table cloths settings. We both were disappointed with our food. It wasn't bad just not as good as we were expecting from the recommendation.

For years, we thought this was just a pub, like the name says. We finally stepped inside to find a very nice Irish ambiance and menu. A mix of traditional entrees along with great pub fare. Of course, you can get a pint of Guiness or a glass of Bushmills or Jameson's.
