We tried out this restaurant based on other recommendations and we were not disappointed. We ate here with our DDP on our first WDW trip. We were about 25 minutes early for our reservations and they were able to seat us within minutes. They seated us in the center of the restaurant in the heart of the dancing action which my boys loved. It was a LOT of fun and we enjoyed the dining experience, however, if you are adverse to loud music and Irish dancing or are looking to have a quiet, intimate conversation filled dinner, don't sit in the middle. I love it when you can go to a restaurant and read about the chef and what they cook and why they cook and what they cook with and this restaurant obliged on all accounts. They share all their local and/or authentic sourcing for their meats, fish, produce, and building materials. This restaurant is able to boast an Irish chef who cooks what he grew up eating with his own twists. Dinner is served with bread and a dipping sauce - I loved it, but it is not for everyone. My kids loved the fact that there was steak on the kids menu. One had steak, the other chicken strips which were battered in the same batter as their fish (from their fish and chips). I may very well have missed the boat by not ordering their fish and chips, but I branched out and tried the bangers and booz. Loved the mash, loved the awesome beef stew, just ok on the sausage. It was good, just not my favorite type of sausage. Dessert was ridiculous - oh my word good but WAY too much for me to eat by myself. I had the bread and butter pudding - I don't like bread pudding but this came at the express recommendation of our waiter and he did not steer me wrong. It was oh so delicious. My dh tried the strawberry and apple crumble and it was good too, but mine was better! The live entertainment was a great bonus and our kids were asked to come dance with the Irish dancers. What a way to start your WDW vacation?! Great service, great menu, good food and a part of the DDP. It was a big hit all around for us.
