“Managment could use an attitude adjustment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

another bar with sticky floors and tables enhanced with an irish theme. the food is average, including the chips and curry sauce. nothing special about their beer selection and service has always been good for us...EXCEPT the RUDE manager on st paddy's day.

my friends have come here a few times and after st paddy's day, it will be our last. the place was packed with a fraternity and sorority vibe so I get how things can get out of control and need to be managed. my friends and I were in the front wing, out of the chaos and madness. we ordered tons of food and drinks and then paid our bill. we then decided to stay longer and ordered a second round of food and drinks, and when we got the bill, additional items were included on the bill that we didn't order. from there world war III started with the manager who wouldn't budge after we tried to explain to her what happened.

in the past, we had no issues with the pub, live music was good and location is prime. speaking of prime, the only reason why I come here is because I have a discount card to get a buy one get one, other than that, I have no interest in coming here.

Food was great, lots of it. Geoff Castle Irish Band was fantastic. Drinks were great. Will return whenever we are on this side of the Cascades.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Such a fun place for a night out. Great music, trivia night, etc. Loud, but not so much that you can't sit around and have a nice chat with friends. Friendly bartenders and quick service. A+ place to visit!

“We love Celtic Night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

The Rover has a very welcoming atmosphere, and my family enjoys visiting. We particularily enjoy Monday evenings with Dan Connolly and Geoffrey Castle performing Celtic Night music.
