We sat outside (the inside does have a lingering smoke odor). We had an amazing nachos appetizer, followed by their superb lamb burger. I also had their own Irish stout— by far the best I’ve ever had.

I dropped in here for a few whiskeys last night and again this afternoon for a Guinness. The place was busy on Friday, but reasonably quiet on Saturday. Good efficient staff and a fun crowd. They pour a proper pint and have a very extensive...More

A great Irish Pub and a fun place to spend an evening. The music is great and sets the mood. A good selection of ‘pub grub’. Servers are friendly and quick in a fast paced environment.

They brew the beer on site and it is all good as is the service. Food is above average for a pub as is the service. Limited seating outside plenty of seats inside or at the bar.

I was disappointed in the quality of my corned beef sandwich (Rueben). I found the meat rather dry and the bread flavorless. Very disappointed!

Neat, cozy place to hang out/grab a bite to eat. Our son had the reuben and said it was one of the best he has ever had. My husband and I had the shepherd's pie. I'm not much for shepherd's pie but their description just...More
