The low country broil was excellent! They serve food until like 1am or 2am! I didn't like the uncomfortable bar stool seating in the bar area.

I've been to many Irish pubs in my life, and this is by far the worst. The food is disgusting and the restaurant is gross. The shepards pie was obviously made with instant mashed potatoes. The meat in it tasted lousy.

I love coming here and enjoying a nice pint while listening to Irish music. It's a quaint place, unfortunately full of obnoxious people who lack the courtesy that the musicians deserve. Despite the din from the large table next to me, we had an enjoyable time.
