Prior to the pandemic, we enjoyed lunch here several times a month. Went for lunch on the weekend and was going to sit outside. The waitstaff all were wearing masks but the tables outside were not spaced apart for the size of the groups sitting...at them and none of those folks were wearing masks. I understand not wearing a mask when you're eating or drinking but that was not the case. Maybe a good idea for management to remove just a few table to space out better.More

The food was good at this Irish Pub, but not spectacular. My husband had the sausage, mashed potatoes, and peas. I had a chicken quesadilla. They have 2 for 1 Barefoot wines from 4-7.. We had a wonderful waitress who made the trip worthwhile.

I like to go here for a late night drink. The surroundings are very authentic Irish Pub. The location is also fun for large groups.

We loved this place! We stopped in one afternoon before thanksgiving for a drink. Very laid back, cold beer and good drinks. Heidi doing a fantastic mixologist behind the bar. Looks like it would be a great place to escape the summer heat. While we...were sipping, we saw one of their salads! WOW! Next time we'll eat here! Urban Cowgill November 2019More

We stopped here for some late night drinks. They had some kind of trivia game going on. Not sure if that is why we didn't get decent service or they're always like that.

This Irish pub has been excellent everytime..ok except their Boxty is really not good. I personally favor their fish and chips...my husband loves...loves their blackened grouper...They beer selection is fantastic!! Its more like a traditional style Irish pub...the bar area is just beautiful with its...stained glass chandeliers. The people are always super friendly too!More

Had a late lunch walking around downtown. The steak salad was very good, lots of steak and well prepared. Hamburger was flavorful and the fries were good. Service was quick and waitress friendly.

I have tried this place 3 times and today is the last. First time, we waited 20 minutes for them to take our drink order and 20 minutes for them to serve a nasty Irish Coffee made with old coffee. We left without ordering anything...else. Second time, I tried the Fish and Chips which were so bad, I couldn't eat them. I told the waitress they tasted like old grease and she said, "Yes, that happens when they don't change the oil in a long time". Gross! We left without eating. I tried again today because we just wanted to sit outside and have a breakfast sandwich and drink. Again...15 minutes for anyone to even take the drink order, 15 minutes to bring the drinks, which included a simple cup of coffee. Then another 10 minutes waiting for the cream for the coffee. That's over 30 minutes just to order the food. My husband never got the 2nd drink he ordered so we told the waitress to just forget it and bring us the check. Another 10 minutes and we get the check, with the drink we ordered almost 30 minutes ago. We told her AGAIN that we didn't want it and why bother bringing it with the check. She gave us a blank start like we were speaking Martian. There were NO customers inside and only half the tables filled outside. How can it always take so long? The bar is the worst. You wait forever and the drinks are not good. It's a shame because they put so much into making this a cool Irish Pub with awesome outdoor seating and then put no effort into service. We will never go back, but it doesn't seem like they care much whether we do or not. Too bad. Could be good with a little effort. I'm giving it a 1 for value, not because it's expensive, but because it's too aggravating to eat there.More

We sat in the bar area with a local friend. Had a beer and an appetizer, a very delicious egg roll. The waitress was nice and friendly. We stayed just for one drink due to time. Would love to return to this place and try...some of the entrees on their menu. Overall, this place is a winner!More

If you want to spend $4 for a Bloody Mary in a rocks glass that somehow manages to still be under-poured, then this is the place for you. The inattentive wait staff will be sure to ignore you and the bartender will forget all the...garnish (not that a rocks glass could hold any) except olives that clearly have bacteria growing on them.More
