“Microwave Corned Beef? Really”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Great atmosphere for a beer and a sandwich, but! How hard is it to make steam table corned beef? In New York, it is common to have the real stuff. In Florida, faggetaboudit! Microwave food is just that. All in all, nice place.

“Nice Pub for Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Always consistent with the serving size of their sandwiches. We eat there a lot and always get the same old, same old sandwiches. (Tuna) They never fail to disappoint us. The size of the sandwich is always plentiful to eat. You won't be disappointed.

“Local Dive for drunks”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

A popular hangout for the heavy drinkers in the area, but nothing worth visiting unless you want the noise and back-slapping atmosphere of Irish pubs.

“microwaves - really?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

was directed to this restaurant when looking for a good ruben sandwich, or just corned beef.
While the rye was grilled, the meat was microwaved with the cheese - not on the sandwich.

Not what I expected for an Irish pub at all - the menu is more like American diner fare - salad with scoop of tuna salad, egg salad, etc. oh, and the soup - yeah, just skip it.

The wait staff - attentive and personable- and quick . . .

a quick look at the bar offerings - nothing spectacular -
basically, it's a bar with diner food.

by the way, the menu and the sign on the door says Irish pub and deli - no deli that I noticed. just the poor cook with multiple microwaves and you can hear them ding throughout the establishment.
