Very pleased with my visit. The atmosphere and ambience are great. Our server was a delightful girl with a great attitude and attention. The corned beef on my Ruben was flavorful and tender, the bread grilled just right. I loved everything about this place.

Fish and chips. Fish was super hot, fries not so much, but still good. Service was fast. Fireplace was a nice touch. Sure wish they had pint glasses with Molly Brannigans on them. Oh well. Good food and atmosphere.

Downtown Erie has few nice places to eat, but this is great for pub grub. Irish pub atmosphere with nice beer selection. The table service system seems a bit chaotic as we were never really sure who was serving our table. However they all were...More

Great Irish bar for lunch, offering pick 2 selections at a good price. The food was good, as was the service. Loved the fact that I got a pot of tea, not just a small cup.
