I had a great night in the family room downstairs for my birthday party. The room was big enough for all my family and friends and close to the bar. The food platters were good too which were served on time.

We had a great time experiencing an authentic Irish pub. Everyone but us were locals. The servers were very helpful and patient with us. We enjoyed the fish and chips and Guinness stew.
