This has been a regular rendezvous location for 15 years, but last night was not a great experience. While the waitress was nice, she was rather incompetent. She forgot to put in the order for appetizers, which we discovered when she came to get our...More

Food is always consistent and good Irish fair. It has a nice indoor and outdoor bar area which always seems to be hopping and popular.

Stopped in for dinner, seated promptly. When the waitress came she did not make us feel welcome at all. She even suggested we go outside instead to the outside sitting area. We ordered and she continued to make us feel uncomfortable by asking questions and...More

The trivia night on Wednesdays offers inexpensive drinks, the ability to order off the bar menu, and fair to excellent service depending upon what section you sit in. The trivia is fun -- run as a side-gig by the host, it features themed, general knowledge,...More

We came with a group and loved it when we were greeted by an Irish accent and shown to our table. They seated our group of 12 with no reservations quite easily. The Crab dip was amazing. The cheese five onion soup was delicious. The...More

This is a great place for drinks with friend or business associates. Service is good, food is good, beer was cold. Little strange to have what I would call a Irish Sports bar teaching line dancing. But my Irish friends. Have informed me that the...More

We love to go there for our British/Irish food fix. Typical pub food but with several nice entrees for those who prefer something beside fish and chips.
