Traditional Irish Pub and Restaurant with a menu to feature classic Irish Fare, mixed with contemporary favorites like our corned beef poppers. We also have vegetarian, and gluten free options. Our chef chooses fresh local ingredients, as well as hand cuts our steaks and fish. Our first cut corned beef is prepared in house and is a local favorite. Our pub is warm, and we have live local music Thursday thru Saturday nights, and our Sunday Brunch is award winning featuring a full buffet and $1.50 Mimosas. We get our oysters local and fresh daily and pride ourselves on being a local oyster recovery station and certified green restaurant.
