The food choices were excellent. They serve all different kinds of fries and the turkey club was large enough for lunch and dinner. The service was a bit on the slow side so let them know if you are in a hurry.

Someplace open late in Branchburg. You really only have three choices - here or Royal or Thirsty's - both where you don't want to go if you're not a regular (especially Royal). Middle of the road experience. Middle of the road service. Middle of the road food. Middle of the road live music. Loud, young crowd (early 20s) which is... More

I really want to like this place but something always seems to disappoint me. During my most recent trip our server seemed more interested in going home than taking care of us. When our dinners were complete she came over with the check in hand and asked if we needed anything else. She then proceeded to drop the check on... More

Three girfriends order the Blackened Red Snapper special and all suffer a not-so-mild case of food poisoning. We did tell the waiter that the fish was highly over-seasoned, almost too hot to eat - guess that was done to hide the bad taste!

The service is not so good. Neither is the food. The place has very tight seating and it is loud when crowded.

Great place to have a burger or sandwich. The salads are also a huge portion. The place is a little dark so we always ask to sit near window. Very good service too.

Great burgers but come on, are people so picky these days that their approach is to now not serve burgers w the typical toppings (lettuce & tomato) unless the customer asks!? Nice atmosphere. Cozy w fireplace. Nice bar.

I'm not a big fan of Irish food so I ordered the southside burger which was very good. The thing I would change is the pulled pork was a little dry some bbq sauce would make it better. We also ordered willies calamari which didn't stand a chance cleaned the plate. We usually go traditional but it was delicious. Vennela... More

This Irish restaurant is amazing. The food is excellent with a lot of traditional Irish favorites. We held my son's 50th birthday celebration in The Cottage room. The service was phenomenal, the food fantastic, and the presentation of the meal was superior. From the fish and chips, Shepard's pie, to the burgers and Hangar steak. The restaurant was very well...
