A truly unique experience. Love the funky atmosphere, and the food is great. Did I forget to mention that the place is haunted???!!!

If you're looking for a dive bar full of locals, cheap beer, and random liquor this is a great place to swing by!

It might not look like a great pub but it truly is. The drinks are very reasonable and they make a great Irish coffee and Spanish coffee. The staff are very nice and attentive. The basic bar food is pretty good too.

It's not one of the tourist traps - just a nice place to have a drink and a snack. It's also situated on the river, (hence the name) so it's great to look outside. We'll be back!

Bartender was rude and really put out by our presence. Really to bad we like funky bars. Tried this place twice. Both times same horrible unwelcome feeling.
