The drink selection is great (both Guinness and Murphy's available), the food is great, and the service was great. It fills up quickly so if you get there much later than 1830 you might be eating at the bar or waiting for a table.

We called in one rainy afternoon in March. It was warm and welcoming. I would recommend it to anyone.
