We went for dinner during the week and it was perfect. Of course we ordered some tap beers (I wish they were cooler) and ordered some appetizers which were actually very good. Great place to chill.

Had a nice pint of Guinness in here last night, but man it was VERY busy around 6:00PM on a Saturday, at least 3 deep at the bar. Once I got a drink and we found a corner it was ok. Feels like the kind of place that you would want to be in a crowed with. Not especially good... More

Went here for dinner one night while on business in the area. This a quite an authentic Irish style pub. The menu, drinks and atmosphere fit the name. The food was excellent.
