“Great food, close quarters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Loved the food -fish and chips. Perfectly prepared and served promptly. Prices were very good and the food selections were what you would typically expect from a pub. There were football games on tv's and they had lots of enthusiastic patrons. The only complaint I would have is that the tables are so close together that you could share your food with your neighbor. No one seemed to mind, but it was just a bit too close for me.

“What's the hype???”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This place is about as far removed from an Irish pub as you can get. There was nothing inside the place that would even come close to an Irish theme, including entertainment. The drinks were overpriced although our waitress was friendly and fast. The doorman was a sourpuss and it was evident he was not happy about being there or welcoming patrons. Crossing that place off my list.

“I love good food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

So, those who know me know I love good food. This place has good food. Went there with a party of 6. Service was prompt & polite. The food, lamb stew, was delicious. I was amazed at the serving size. My fellow diners got the fish & chips, and were amazed!. Their fish was almost as big as the plate! I really enjoyed the stew. Watching a little soccer while enjoying the meal was even better.
