“Eh.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This looked Irish and had an Irish name, but the atmosphere didn't really capture that. The food was OK at best and there weren't great specials. Nice view, but not the Irish pub i thought i was going to.

“Great social place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Atmosphere - 4.5: Very popular place with a great crowd - although very crowded (sometimes hard to get from one area to the next)
Service - 5: Bartenders were fairly nice and prompt!
Cost - 5: Very cheap drinks, affordable (~$5-7 a mixed drink).

The only downside of this is the cover. I didn't expect to pay $10 for entry into a bar. I waited for about 10-15mins to get in, but once inside, definitely a popping place to be!

“Don't order the Irish nachoes.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Before going to a concert my friend and I stopped at whiskey priests to grab a drink and some food. We ordered nachoes.. We asked for no bangers on them. Well they came with bangers on them, we said whatever. After eating half of the nachoes, we noticed a roach that was baked on top of the cheese.. Needless to say we freaked out and told the waitress. She gave us a free drink, and on the way out she made a joke about extra protein, we didn't find it funny. Avoid this place.
