Took us a short minute to figure out that seating was self-serve. Large tables & booths encourage sharing seating space. Large menu with good variety. Table service was attentive & our food arrived quickly and was tasty.

Our neighborhood group decided to go out for dinner and chose this place. We didn't all drive together so some of us arrived ahead of others. Although it was very crowded we found a table big enough to seat the six of us. The people at this table were just leaving so two of us grabbed the table and were... More

This is a great spot for lunch when in town. The inside has beautiful VERY old floors etc and the food is made HOMEMADE daily! Their soups are amazing!

Great atmosphere, good food, and a terrific atmosphere, along with live music. We were there twice while in town. I really enjoyed the Shepard's pie.

Ordered the Salmon of Knowledge and Fish 'n Chips, the food was fantastic and we licked our plates clean! There is limited seating, and the majority of tables would be perfect for groups. On a busy night, though, plan to share a table. Outdoor seating is another option. The environment is cozy and eclectic, with some cool memorabilia. Clean restrooms,... More

So, we really like Irish food and thought we'd give this location a good try but came up disappointed. The Scotch Eggs were good however, would have preferred they not be crisp browned. The cod potato cake was ok but again fried to a hard crisp, lacking moisture. My husband and I both ordered the corn beef and cabbage which... More

I took my father to this restaurant on a rainy day. The place had live music and had great, friendly waiters and waitresses. I'd say that the service was the best thing at the restaurant. Maybe it was because it was a Wednesday, but the place wasn't busy. It featured wooden tables but seemed to be a little bar. However,... More

This feels about as authentic as an Irish pub as you will find outside of Ireland. It was quite busy with families in the restaurant areas and others up at the bar. I got the Shepherd's Pie which was good. Fish and chips looked good. The beer was served cool, not cold.

Neat Irish Pub atmosphere. I enjoyed the fish and chips, served wrapped in newspaper and my husband really liked the daily special which was a stew made with seafood - really good.

They were extremely busy, but the experience was great overall. You not only feel like you are in Ireland. You feel at HOME! Highly Recommend!
