We tried to get a seat at the restaurant and we waited 10 minutes. When another couple people came in we were asked who was there first. We said we were, they sat them before us and told us we would have to wait. Guess their buddies are more important than out of towner's. We left and hostess said See... More

Seated quickly (5:45pm) to the second floor dining room. Had burgers so can't comment on the Irish selections. Good selection of draft beer with a few local and regional beers. Bar has a rustic old feel. Nice use of an old downtown building.

I love this restaurant. It is located centrally in downtown Bangor right in the middle of everything. The atmosphere is so warm and inviting and the staff is extremely friendly. They have great authentic Irish food and amazing salads. This is a great place for lunch and a great place to stop in at on the weekends as they do... More

We stopped here for a drink and supper before attending a show at the Theatre. We have been here before, but this time the meal was just okay. Our server was attentive and provided good service, but the general atmosphere seems a bit tired.

We stopped in for drinks and get the fell of downtown Bangor. They had $5 bloody Marys so we were off to a good start. Since we were bar hopping we chose to share an appetizer. We ordered the Poutine Frites. They were some of the best Poutine that we had ever had! The potatoes were crisp and the gravy... More

Met a girlfriend here for dinner and drinks. They have booths and tables outside. We sat at the bar and the bar tender was very good. We ordered a soup and salad combo and a guiness burger. Both were very good. The prices fit the portions and the atmosphere was good too. I will go back for sure.

We met some family members for dinner before a show at the waterfront. All 5 us said they really enjoyed their meals. Wait staff were very friendly and made us feel welcomed. We will definitely return when we are back in town!
