Have eaten here a few times. Can't get past Patty's Fish and Chips. Have tasted other dishes but really like Patty's. Great Rubin also. I will continue to frequent as long as the food is great, with good service. They also serve a free breakfast on Veterans day, always appreciated.

Lunch are such a bargain. One meat with three veggies only $7.99. Green beans are so flavorful, creamy mashed potatoes and broccoli salad. Will come back if we are in the area.

This place serves very good Irish food and many Irish beers, including Smithwicks (my favorite). I had a shepards pie that was huge and so well prepared. Wife had a Ruben that she said was the best she had ever had. Large menu and large beer selection. Try it, you will not be sorry.

The atmosphere is great, the wait staff are friendly and prompt. I would highly recommend their bloody mary. The outside seating area is comfortable and overlooks downtown. Great gathering spot for groups of friends.
