I love Irish pubs, and this is one of my favorites. Dark, cozy, great food and drink, interesting 'craic'. Great Guinness!!

Ate here this evening before heading over to the UMass Lowell hockey game. Food was good. Ordered the buffalo fingers which were ok. Some of them were over cooked which made them inedible. My husband ordered the steak sandwich which he enjoyed. Service was excellent. Nice choice of beers.

If you're in downtown Lowell and don't know where to go to get a good meal, drink and friendly atmosphere, you will find it all at the Court. The wide array of beers on tap and the pub style menu make it a "can't go wrong" event. At some point you will be greeted by one of the owners, Finbar... More

We sat at the bar and the bartender was friendly. My wife had a salad and I really liked my haddock sandwich. Exactly what we wanted for a quick lunch and would be a great place to hang out if we were local.

This is a classic Irish Pub. Great food with that homemade flair. Lots of beers to choose from. Love the windows that can be opened to the outside during great weather. Some musical entertainment.

A true Irish pub with fairly traditional Irish pub grub! Ian and Finn (owners) hail from the old country and are witty and charming to their clientele, which include families with young children, couples and singles of all ages. Last night, I enjoyed a cheeseburger, with sweet potato fries. It was prepared medium, as requested and came hot and juicy!... More

It wasn't completely horrible, but I didn't really like the food. I got the fish and chips, and it really wasn't very good. The fries were hollow shells of what used to be potatoes (and they were frozen, for sure). The piece of fish was gigantic, and had far too much "fried" on the outside (extra batter that was globbed... More

Dined here with friends based upon other reviews and were not disappointed. Food was very good, service was friendly. The rueben sandwich was tender and prepared just right. Fish and chips also got high marks. The fries were crisp and nicely done. Portions overall were generous and prices reasonable. The place is a bit shop worn and the atmosphere was... More

If you love pub food like we do, this is the place to go in the Lowell area. The menu is simple but varied and quite affordable. Burgers are huge. Sweet potato fries are crazy good. Well rounded selection of beers and whiskeys. Great place before a UML Hockey game or any other plans you have in the area. Wait... More

Good and atmosphere were just average. Friendly staff, annoyingly attentive. Fish and chips were alright. Hamburger was subpar.
