Great restaurant and bar. We ate lunch here and our food was excellent. Good service. The beer selection was a bit lacking, which is perplexing given that there is a local brewery with incredible beer (none of which is on the menu here). We ate...More

Had a late afternoon lunch which was good. Beer taps can use a cleaning. Outdoor seating pet friendly. Cool building.

I wish I could tell you about the food. Not sure what the deal was with the waitstaff and/or hostess. There was no one to greet us at the door and no acknowledgement from the bar when we arrived or from the staff wandering around....More

I love everything about Irish Pubs; the food, the atmosphere, the Guinness. Unfortunately, I have had nothing but bad experiences at this restaurant. I have been on six different occasions throughout the year and experienced cold food, bad service, rude banter from the manager/owner (older...More
