Stopped in here one evening during a weekend visit to Syracuse as it was across the street from our hotel. Fun spot, lots of beer, adequate appetizers. lots of people. It was a place to get a drink before our dinner reservations. All in all, good experience. One of the group wanted to go back Saturday night for more wings.... More

Our waitstaff was charming, friendly, and their timing was always impeccable. The food was incredibly delicious, and my husband loved the wonderful beer selections from all over New York. We were not in the dining room, but the bustle of the bar added to the wonderful atmosphere.

Been here a couple times now. Love the reuben fritters, they r amazing. Good beer and the staff is always very helpful and fast. Wings aren't very good in my opinion bit I like them breaded. Live band on Friday night was very good. Nice mix of classics and Irish music.

If you're headed there for a drink, this is as good as it gets. Beer choices are numerous and eclectic and our waiter was very knowledgeable. For a meal, it's a good if not amazing choice but that's mainly because irish cooking is, by design, a bit on the bland side. That being said, what we did have was very,... More

Good beer and wine options. Good menu options. Very good staff. Live music, a separate room where it is easier for a conversation.

Stopped here during the Syracuse food tour. We were very impressed. Authentic Irish food. We sampled their version of the "shepherd's pie"--cabbage topped with mashed potatoes, then ham on top. It was then sprinkled with parsnips and a creamy horseradish sauce...mmmmm. Definitely a restaurant to go back to when in the downtown Syracuse area.

This place was wonderful. The food was absolutely amazing. For how crowded and packed it was, the food came very quickly. There was an excellent gluten free menu to choose from, as well as many drink options. Options to sit inside or out. There was a small stage for live music later that night. I didn't want my meal to... More

Has better food choices other than the typical, though. Had this funky mushroom dish with peppers and liked it. Staff a little slow but the place was enjoyable.

My son and I wanted to go to Pastabilities but the lunch buffet was not calling his name after two weeks of college food. So off to the Pub we went. We were seated quickly at around 1pm. The hostess was a sweetheart. We ordered the calamari - it was fair - but our mains were great. I had the... More

I have eaten here a few times since being out here and this place isn't bad. Fish and chips and the burgers were both good, beer is always cold.
