Super nice staff – and interesting venue

We only stopped in for a couple of drinks one afternoon, but felt we need to post a review based on the staff. We sat at the bar and there were several servers, bartenders and staff in the area and busy. However, every one of them took a second to acknowledge us with a smile and to say Hello or... read more

I love going to this pub. Has a real hole in the wall feel that I get when I go to Europe. The view upstairs is great. I frequently take family and friends to lunch here to enjoy the food and the sight. Also have live music on the weekend that fits the Celtic theme going on at Kevin Barry's

What a wonderful spot to watch the activity on the river while enjoying fabulous food. Then go inside and see the patriotic gallery. It was very clean and the service was very good.

Tilapia hash was great, music was awesome, went there one night for food/music and returned the following for a couple good drinks and potato soup. Surely going to stop back in on the next visit to Savannah.

We stopped in for lunch as we were captured by the "history" of the restaurant. It turns out this place would be better as a tourist attraction offering tours rather that as the restaurant that it purports to be. The service was adequate but the food was nearly inedible. All the fried entrees we overcooked and the fry oil definitely... More

Great old school Irish pub. We met a friend there and had Guinness for lunch. Food looked good too. The bartender could have used some help, she was busy!

Come here for the music especially if Frank Emerson is singing! You will experience a fun filled night of singing old Irish favorites where other tables become old friends! Food is good pub food and i always enjoy the fish and chips. Try and Irish Coffee or a Guinness and sing along!
