“Great atmosphere and service. Food average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

I ordered sirloin steak which was good. Mashed potatoes were okay and ample portion of snap peas were included. My boyfriend had fish and chips which he said the fish was dry. Waitress was very good and outside seating was perfect!

“Try another spot! The service was terrible. It's not the shenanigans of yesteryear!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I loved this place. Not anymore. The service was so bad i would never go back. When we asked our server for more bread for the crab dip she snarled and said it's going to be awhile and she never brought it. The soda was flat. We told her so the co2 tank could be changed. She said that's how it tastes here. She even told us she was very busy when we told her the food was cold. So many places in oc don't go here.

“Great food on the OC Boardwalk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

What goes better after a day at the beach than good food and drink at an Irish pub? My family and I have been eating here since we discovered OC and have never been disappointed. This year was no different. The food was fresh, hot and tasty while the drinks were cool, refreshing and balanced. The staff is great and outside dining is a plus. Don't pass this one up while strolling the OC boardwalk for lunch, dinner or a refreshing beverage.

“Just okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013 via mobile

An okay restaurant. Fair prices, good food. The inside seating is a little crowded. I would return again.

Thanks for taking the time to get in touch! I'm glad that our staff could take such great care of you and your wife, especially in accommodating your dietary restrictions. We want all of our guests to be able to enjoy our menu, after all! It sounds like our burger and salmon really hit the spot — I can't wait to hear what you think of some of our other dishes, too. All the best, Greg - Owner
