“Good food and live music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012

Service was good and the live jazz music was very nice. A little confusing when you first walk in, because there is no host, signs, directions, etc. It's a very laid back environment. Sit where you want. Upstairs opens at 9pm. The French fries and sweet potato fries were cold when they got to the table, but it's not a deal breaker. I don't like sauerkraut and the ruebenator was fantastic. The grilled cheese with pesto was great! If you like spice, get the fish tacos. And I mean SPICE! It was so hot, I couldn't eat it, which is not warned anywhere of the intensity of the spice. Try asking for the mayo on the side, because the fish tacos were fantastic! The nachos had a cheese that really made them taste unbelievable. The chips were very tasty. In my opinion, I would have liked more fresh veggies, but that is merely my desire, because the nachos were good!

“If you love Irish, you will love this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

Great atmosphere and go when the local Irish musicians and singers gather to sing and play Irish tunes. Fun and the food is good and they make a mean Cosmo! But they have a good choice of beers and Irish whiskeys.
