About
A good Irish pub is traditionally the cornerstone of the town. It is a place that can be a destination for multiple purposes, or no reason at all. The publican (owner) should be known to all on a handshake basis. Being involved in the community outside of the pub is a big part of this. From family lunches on the weekends to watch soccer on the big screen, to some questionable dance moves after the sun goes down, a good Irish pub has something for everyone. We have been under new ownership since July 2015 and new Executive Chef Stephanie Gray has created a great seasonal menu while keeping the traditional favorites.
