Great People and Atmosphere

We only had drinks at this place, but the wait staff was great and very friendly. They didn't just place your drink down, they actually talked with you.

We loved sitting on the balcony looking at the river and the food was delicious. It is authentic pub food and probably the best shepard's pie I have ever eaten. Nice displays honoring the military inside.

Down on River street... Tara and her staff welcome all who enter. It's a lively place with live music at 8pm (I think it is every night). This is a cozy place to escape the Georgia heat and enjoy a great Irish beer or you favorite cocktail. If you go you to visit the Hall of Heros up stairs. The... More

I hate writing these kinds of reviews but feel I must in this case. We made a trip down to the river specifically to visit Kevin Barry's. We walked into the pub and it was pretty empty. No big deal but the bartender did not have that jovial pizazz that we have become accustom to at an Irish pub. We... More

First off, if you read the article about them having that famous Artillery Punch, don't believe it. We went there in pursuit of the punch and the bartender kindly let us know that it was a misprint, and they don't actually serve the punch. She actually told us of a few places that do serve it, she was the ONLY... More

Stopped for a light lunch. We ordered 2 house salads and a order of wings. Moldy grape tomatoes and tired old baby carrots. Pointed out to the server who offered to replace but we declined I was afraid of what else they don't notice in the kitchen. We left the salads mostly uneaten and shared the wings, truly a light...

Visited previously and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, so I was totally unprepared for the disaster of March 18th. Granted it was the day after the St. Patrick's Day parade and our group was very large but we were told we could be accommodated. Two waitresses, one with a nasty attitude, for 48 people was not the way to go. Some... More
