“Don't bother unless you really have no choice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

With so many better restaurants nearby, I regret coming here. The food was so so and they got the bill wrong. They made us wait even though there were tables ready.

“Great food at a good price!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We recently ate dinner at the pub. Both entries (barbecue beef tips and salmon stuffed with crab and lobster) were excellent. We will definitely go back.

This place is serving nice well cooked irish food. Very very tasty. All this takes place in a very vivid background with "allegro" music!

Very nice casual decor, food was good...not too crazy about the shepherd's pie, but salad and appetizers were very, very tasty.
