“JUST ANOTHER IRISH PUB”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Dark, smelly, average everything. The SMALLEST washrooms I have ever seen - smaller than in an airplane!!!
Food just grease filled, and then just more unhealthy options. Wait staff not very attentive, but also not terrible....Location is busy with a very small parking lot in back...street parking difficult at best times. There is a pay lot about a 5 min walk south....
The one great thing is the really high roof top patio. You can see the lake from it, and they serve up there..REALLY HIGH...Steep walk to get up there, but worth it...

“Better than average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This place needs strong management. They have so much going for them...good location, with great patios including a roof patio. Food is usually very good, better than usual pub food, and staff are usually fast and friendly.

The problem is consistency. It gets a little busy, or something throws them off, and the experience is not good. A great hostess or floor manager would really make a difference.

“Never Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

This place is a disaster. The staff acted like they could care less if they were there or not. We brought 2 small children and they they placed us at a table on probably the top floor.

The food was not good and my friend ordered a burger and the bottom of the bun was covered in mold. He sent it back, got no apology, no refund nothing and they would not take even a cent off the bill.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

Cool roof top patio. Good food and they make a nice ceaser! Also has plenty of different levels if you get board of the main floor. Worth a check out.

“A Yellow Man is not too lucky to be hired in a 4-Leaf Clovers' Pub!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Oh Good 'Ol Murphy's Law "Irish Pub"........2012 Holiday "Guest Appreciation" Party eh????

I remember in year mid-2000 I got a call and an interview here for Bartender/Server position because of my qualifications and experiences laid out on my resume. However, during the interview which didn't last long because the Lady Manager told me on the spot, that "they rather hire their own kind."

I was speechless and my face was white! It was like I saw a ghost!

But on the flip side, SURPRISINGLY, without any grudges - because my "life" is more than their own kind - I still used to go there and still gave them business on the year late-2000s "Every After" beach volleyball throughout the week and weekends, and throughout the Spring and the Summer!

I wonder if the Lady Manager is still there. God forbid if she was the Lady Owner! Oh boy.....
