“True Irish pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

So much fun. The piano player could play anything. Irish drinking songs, 60s, 70s, just about anything and funny too. Fish and chips were good too. We ate lunch there and had to go back that night for more song and ale.

“fairly authentic pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

Place is not huge no dance floor if you are into the club scene. It does do a reasonable job of recreating a pub though. Is loud and even perhaps raucous so also not a place for a quiet romantic evening. But for something different is worth a visit

“Good for drinking and watching drunks try to sing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

There's someone playing music pretty much non-stop here, but it's not a family location for sure. Hear the same old songs everytime I walk by or go into this place, but it's fun for a bit and the drinks are varied and cold. Service is always decent and it's fun for people watching. There's always a group of drunks that wants to sing along to every song, so expect that and you'll have a good time.

“Fun spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Had a quick and delicious Reuben sandwich and sure wish I could have stayed longer - the very funny and entertaining piano player makes this worth a visit.
