Service is very slow on any given day, so we were hoping to put in our order ahead on St. Patrick's day. I understand that they have to consider their capacity and other business logistics, but the Manager was very unfriendly and essentially did not care whether or not we support their business. Manager was very condescending and snappy.

After reading some of the previous reviews my husband and I were a little concerned going in. However the burgers were good with a nice presentation and plenty of fries. It was Saturday night and there wasn't anyone there. Not a lot of life. TVs showing sports with a large area and no patrons. Looks like a good spot for... More

Do I even have to give this place one star? What I liked about it: Nothing. Here's why... There's only one server for the entire place. And why it may not be her fault - it took me three requests to get my water. We were with a group of people who had just done an escape room nearby (also... More

Love Irish pubs and food. Thought we would try this while in town. Slow service- our beers came after dinner was set down, oh and so did the silverware. I had Sheppard ' pue. Five times more potatoes than the actual meat, veggies, and gravy. Meat was pasty, rubbery, and tough. Not real hot, more like tolerably warm. Finished less... More

We were going to the Glass House to see some heavy metal bands play, but since we had time we walked over to this basement pub to get a few micro brews. They have a nice collection of beers on hand and the prices are basically the same of other nearby places. The bartender was very attentive and friendly.

A friend recommended we meet here for dinner. The burger and the fish & chips were pretty good. This is a bar and the food was good for a bar. They also gave you a nice portion of food, no skimping here. Seems to have a number of beers on tap, unfortunately they did not have one of my favorites... More

First ever visit. Was looking for an Irish pub/restaurant to meet up with some friends. We sat downstairs in the pub. I and one of my friends had the Shepherds pie and my other friends had a burger and a salad. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The Shepherds pie was lamb which is unlike all the others I'd had, ground beef.... More

I was completely dissatisfied with my experience here. I regretfully took my friends out for a drink here. The staff is just as rude as its bar patrons. This bar definitively has a bad vibe.

We had never been and we bought the Groupon. The DJ played great music. We had the calamari appetizer and the classic burger and chips. It was fabulous! I'll be back for sure!

Enjoyed watching the Super Bowl there last Sunday. Friendly staff and good pub food especially the chips and chicken wings.
