Bear with me on this review. My wife and I went out for an early St. Patrick's Day Celebration arriving here about 11:20 A.M.. We were the first customers of the day. We ordered a Guinness Beer and Corned Beef Rubens with fries and a side of IPA onion gravy. My wife has been thinking about this Ruben all week.... More

Just went for restaurant week. Had a fantastic meal! A pint of beer was included! I had a seafood shepherds pie that was great! My partner had a huge prime rib, great appetizers and dessert! Lauren L and Tom McDonald took great care of us! Will definitely go back again!

We just returned from dinner and were disappointed in the quality of the food. Our cabbage rolls were difficult to chew and the bloomin' onion was cooked in old oil (or left in the fryer too long). We both ordered very rare prime rib and were served medium well, being generous. Waitress happily returned to kitchen and brought back rare... More

I work about a block away from here, so it was the first choice when meeting my friend for our mutual birthday lunch. The French Onion Soup was tasty, the cole slaw was a tad dry, but I like it like that, and the burger was delicious -- even if it was a tad under-done. Still a good choice.

Pinhead Susan's is a great local restaurant serving Irish pub fare. My favorite is the Shepherd's Pie. They also have a good variety of beer, specializing in local brews. There is plenty of room for groups and parking.

I had the portobello mushroom burger and it was excellent. I also had a bowl of chili (very good) which I wish came in a larger portion with additional chips. I drank the "orange dream" cocktail (loved it) and a nutty Irishman (good). Caught a bite to eat here before a show so it was a bit crowded which added... More

Nice place, for a downtown place to eat... Food is good service prompt. Sweet Potato Fries are delicious! If you go in the evening the drinks are also very good!
