We went into this place because we were looking for something light for dinner and their menu on Google showed some tasty sounding sandwiches. The place was dark which is to be expected in a pub. The first table we chose was close to the...More

This is not my favorite place. As Irish bars go I suppose it's okay. But they allow smoking inside which makes the place miserable.

I really like this place.It has a cool interior.A good vibe.great food.But the bartenders need training in keeping things sanitary.
