“A nice enough neighborhood bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We stopped here as part of a pub crawl to benefit superstorm Sandy victims.
Actually, I'm not sure it's entirely accurate to call it a "neighborhood" bar since it also seems to be a twenty-something hangout. Characterizing it as a "beautiful Irish Pub..." as they do on their website is something of a stretch. With not many people, it becomes simply a crowded, loud, aging bar. Probably just semantics to most.
Anyway, the crowd noise wasn't overwhelming, but the music was LOUD, on a sound system that was clearly being strained. Music doesn't have to be clearly heard above the crowd. It is often nice to just have it as a background undercurrent.
Service was fast, pleasant and attentive. I only had a cup of chili and buffalo wings. The former was good, though nothing special. The wings were perfect - leaving your lips numb while not flaming the inside of your mouth.
I liked this place for its not-quite-dive atmosphere, service and prices. The floor-plan makes it cramped with not a huge crowd, so I would probably avoid it on St. Patrick's Day, but otherwise I'd go back.

“The bouncers are great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

To the girl who was kicked out maybe if you didn't punch the bouncer in the face you would not have been kicked out the way you say you were. They all did there job well that day and it sounds like that court date will be fun for them to watch you get charged with assaulting a bouncer. They have video cameras all over the place. Good luck winning that one.

“EXTREMELY RUDE AND VIOLENT BOUNCERS”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

My fiancé and I were here for the St Paddys day parade. The bar is always packed regardless of what level you are on. After being there for more than a few hours enjoying ourselves and our friends, some belligerent drunk picked a fight with my fiancé and after trying to break up the anticipated fight I had a drink poured all over me and the bouncers grabbed my fiancé extremely roughly and carried him out choking him the entire time. One also grabbed me and man handled me leaving marks on my arms and shoving me down stairs all the while yelling obscenities at me. Neither me or my fiancé ever got rowdy. This bar is for trashy people. The bouncers are pathetic gym rejects that think they have the right to assault others. I will be going to court with this and would like to warn others of such disgusting behavior. If you'd like to be physically assaulted, go here!

“Gotta love the hoppa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

I've must have been here 100 times! Always a good vibe. I'd say this is overall the most popular watering hole of Morristown. During the week has a good crowd and good deals. Weekends are a party! Age 21-39 would enjoy this place. And if it feels to much, George and Martha's is right next store.

“Probably good on game day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Had lunch this week in the upstairs bar. Well-equipped with flat screen TV's -- probably great on game days. Hamburger and shepherds pie were OK. Service OK. Not quite a dive but pretty well used.
