We popped in here for lunch and a drink. Meals were good- a veggie burger and more traditional beef burger, and the range of beers was wide. Service was a tad slow but not complaining so it had a good atmosphere

This was on our list to visit because of the craft beer. I ordered a beer flight, it comes with 4-7oz beers of your choice. Being a lover of dark beers I wasn't a big fan of the selection. I found them to be lacking in flavor and soapy tasting. We thought they didn't rinse the glasses very good. I... More

The oyster stout was the shining star here. Flavorful and just what you'd expect a good dry stout to taste like. Red ale had dull flavors. Would not order again. Service was not good on a weekend afternoon. There was no one sitting down in the front tables when we entered. We sat down, 5 minutes, no one came despite... More

Most people see a very busy Irish pub. That's thaw it is. There is live music, full tables, and a great selection of house brewed beers, Irish whiskey, and a great international beer selection. When my little group walked in, we were treated to the best service you could ask for. There is a bartender named Ken, have him help... More

I loved the place. I founded it by accident and fortunately I was very lucky. I stayed 3 days in Dublin and I visited the place twice. Nice music, great food and a fantastic collection of beers (draft and bottles). I wish I had taken a picture of the menu. If you like the Irish style of pubs you are... More

It was Good Friday, so we didn't get to taste their beer, which is not the brewery's fault. The service was scattered, with telling people that the kitchen was closing, then that it wasn't, and having to explain to everyone about the drink situation. Our dinners (fish and chips and bangers and mash) were okay, but the bangers and mash... More

My wife and I had a little time to kill before our tour at the distillery and we decided to go to the Porterhouse. We looked up the menu prior to going and knew we wanted the sampler platter as well as the three beer sampler. The food was delicious and we couldn't decide which beer was our favorite, all... More

Went here on a recommendation from a colleague - were not disappointed with the food & alcohol choices available on the menu. Friendly atmosphere & clearly popular with tourists - we loved it!
