The last time I was at this bar, I was a senior in high school. (The drinking age was 18 then). Now I'm back with my adult children, and the place is still the same. Irish beer and whiskey, and singing along with the piano. Great time.

Irish corn beef fries... A must try. I was a bit worried about all the peanut shells on the floor but it was great. The piano guy was quite a crowd pleaser and the atmosphere made it worth it. We did not try the beer but those drinking seemed to enjoy.

Stopped in this piano bar Irish pub recently with some business colleagues and what a hoot that place was. First off you got to love a place that has peanut shells on the table and all over the floors. The musician on the piano was pretty good and entertaining as well and did a good job to engage and fire... More

This is the best piano bar we have ever been to! We ended up going both nights. It's a complete dive with peanut shells everywhere but the crowd is always interactive and it's a fun time! Great music and they take requests (for tips usually!) Highly recommend. Music is most of the day so you don't have to wait until... More

If you like dueling pianos, you'll like this place. There is on one guy on a piano but it's the same concept. The bar is a small, Irish pub with good Irish (and other) beers. Smithwicks is on tap and that's all that really matters. Take a chance. You will have fun.

This place has an authentic, Irish Pub feel to it and it's loud and fun! The pianist is a fantastic comedian that gets the whole bar roaring with laughter and jests! A good spot to step out from the sun and cool off with some cold pints, but oddly enough if your looking for a spot to get lit up... More

This place was a very pleasant experience. Sing along piano pub with outside seating as well. Great, rowdy crowd. Ice cold drinks and unlimited peanuts while you party with friends. Piano player was AWESOME and had several crowd participants get up and sing while he played. Very cozy seating with fireplace (obviously not operating in June). A must see!
