The shepherd's pie is excellent, especially on a chilly day! Live music, great service, and the decor are also a plus. Go earlier to get a good seat, and enjoy!

Cool place to visit. Neat pictures and whatever. Food is unique - unless you are Irish. Share a table with a stranger, share your handle with a friend. Service isn't great. I wouldn't get the Molly Malone again.

Paul and Lindsay( and others) always take great of us when we sit at the bar. It is a welcoming place, even to the opposing team's fans. Great Irish pub food. Great service and always a good meal. Can't wait to go back!
