“Stopped in for live music and blown away by great meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

On an unusually cold, rainy night, my husband and I stepped in to grab a drink and listen to some Irish music. We thought we'd eat elsewhere but after seeing someone else's soup come out looking great we decides to eat there. So glad we did! My husband had the chicken noodle soup which was awesome and I asked the bartender Chris for advice and so glad I did - choose the Reuben - it was awesome! We were so pleasantly surprised. Sometimes pubs are hit or miss but our experience was a definite hit. Loved the charming old school feel of the place and Chris was attentive and friendly. Great Irish pub!

“Best Bartenders in Savannah”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

Great atmosphere. The Bartender Vinnie was attentive, had great stories and I noticed he could relate to anyone in the bar no matter where they were from. Great drink prices. Definitely try the Irish Egg Rolls (A Kevin Barrys original) and the Shepherds pie. Went back the following day and got the wings...surprisingly for an Irish pub the wings were great! This is one of the few bars on the river where you'll find the locals....always a good sign in a tourist area.

“Wonderful menu and entertainment, service not so much...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

The food was amazing, drinks were exceptional and the entertainment nice. The service however was not so good. The waitress kept talking to her roommates and throwing down our items in a hurry just to talk to them.
