We had been here before while visiting Duluth so we thought we would go again. The comedy was very raw and we really wanted to leave shortly after arriving but had ordered food. Our food was awful and we didn't eat much. We will not...return.More

I’m not sure whether I should begin with the good or the bad, so I’ll start out on a positive note. We shared the fish and chips. The fries were some of the best I’ve had in a long time. You can get a small...or large order of fish and chips. The large order included five medium size pieces of fish and tartar sauce. Some Cole Slaw would have gone well but wasn’t offered. Now the bad: There wasn’t anyone to seat customers and a sign says to grab a menu, seat yourself and order at the bar. The bartender then brings your food and you never see anyone again. This is primarily a bar with billiard tables taking up one full half of the restaurant. We were there on a Saturday night and it was LOUD. The restaurant has a dingy, barroom feel to it. That said, the fish and chips WERE good and I’d probably give it a try for something else.More

Whatever is going on here is a bit odd. You seat yourselves and then walk up to the bar to place your order--for food as well as bar items. I.e., no table service at all. The food was WAY too salty! The dry-rub chicken wings...were so salty as to be almost inedible. We had to scrape the rub off with a knife as best we could. The other food was "okay" but nothing special--except for the smoked whitefish which was excellent.More

Nice little pub, great service! The atmosphere definitely has an Irish flair to it. I would recommend a visit and look forward to doing so again.

We went to this bar because it looked like they had really awesome Irish food, but unfortunately they were serving a limited menu due to COVID, so we decided to have a beer instead an find food elsewhere. I had their ale from their brewhouse...and it was very tasty.More

Great food and service. Friendly staff. Free pool and darts! Had bangers and mash, Shepherds pie and fish and chips. All were great. All reasonably priced.

The food was a-mazing. If you like Shepherd's Pie - this is the place for you. Staff was pleasant and service good. Food came quickly.

Friends and co-workers meet here after work from time to time and we always have enjoyed it. The staff is friendly and we will be back.

I think it is 21 because of the alcohol being served.
