The man cave

This place looks really cool with the wood work everywhere, dim lighting and cozy. This place was close to our hotel so it worked out well. Remember to mark as helpful if you read this :-)

Excellent, hearty, well portioned Irish meals and delectable choices to tease the taste buds. I left very happy and FULL. We came in when it was relatively slow on a friday night, within an hour the upper level was packed, and was all being cared for by what seemed to be just one server. Considering it was just one gentleman... More

Black sheep has a nice happy hour menu-try the wings (I asked for them well done) and also the vegetable quesadillas if they are available. The fries are unique and very tasty. I had the shepherd's pie for an entree and it was savory and delicious.

First, Michael and Sonja are excellent servers....On point and the right amount of attentiveness. Me and my boo when here for dinner on New Years day during the Mummers parade. The place was crowded, lively and festive. We were promptly seated upstairs. The Guinness was properly poured, the beef shanks were flavorful and the mashed potatoes were just right.

Went in today to get out of the cold wind and were very pleased. Lucky to get the lady table right by the fireplace. Was a soccer game on so a little loud but great atmosphere. Lunch was delicious. Large portions, served relatively quickly but overall service was excellent. Food was hot, tasty and reasonably priced. Very enjoyable place to... More

If it looks like a British pub, smells like one and serves ten brands of beer, then you may feel at home here. Pub type menu but very well done and cheap as chips. If you are in the area, not crowded for lunch and really good fun. And who knows, Fergy might show up.

We are from out of town and visited this place on a Thursday evening following a conference. They were busy, but still managed to find us a table at 7:30 for 6. They had cold beer and a nice bar area in the basement to wait at. The food was worth the wait. I got one of my favorite Irish... More

Very large restaurant with an extensive menu. There are many small rooms so the atmosphere feels more intimate. Very large servings and tasty British style food.

Definitely a "locals" bar with many regulars but the staff were very friendly and welcoming to a new face. We enjoyed a couple of drinks and pleasant conversation with each other and our waitress. The bar had a lot of New England charm.
