I've been here 4 times. Each time was worst than the first. Cold food, horrible service, rude staff, and they always run out of things on the menu. The live music is cool, not worth it though.

The Celtic Cowboy has a great Weekend breakfast menu. Very authentic Irish breakfast's. They have beefed up their serving staff so the service is really quite good.
