Stopped here for lunch. The menu wasn't hugely diverse but all the food we did have was really quite good. They do have a lot of Americans ideal of Irish food, but the prices were quite steep especially for lunch time. The decor is done to make it feel like an Irish pub, but the over abundance of Irish music... More

Even though, for a "Pub" the prices were unreasonable high. We might have eaten here anyway, if it were not for the unnecessarily too familiar and rather sexist comment made to my wife while I was in the rest room. We decided this was NOT the place for us. Talking with other people around town about this and other local... More

We are there twice and had fabulous service even though it was busy. I definitely recommend the traditional Irish fare.

Loved the food and the atmosphere. Wished that they had had a tasting of the whiskeys...maybe next time...there will be a next time. The steak salad with chunks of blue cheese and home made bread was excellent. Steak cooked just right and veggies crisp and juicy. The Reuben sandwich was perfect and the mac and cheese was good. Bread pudding... More

The atmosphere, staff, and food are all terrific. Although I like the chowder at Shilo better, Galway was good. The fish and ships are a dont miss, and Stefan provided excellent service. We've already been back (more greatness) and will be again before we leave. Great fun! reat food, and good beer!

Once again, we enjoyed dinner at this fun destination. One note....do not expect fast food here. We visited on a Saturday night and we're seated immediately but with slow service and slow food delivery, it was an hour before we actually ate our dinner. The waitress did let us know our orders were behind 2 large parties and she did... More

What a wonderful discovery! The food, drinks, and service are fantastic! The facility is unique, and very much like an old pub. We felt like we were in Ireland... truly! We were there for two dinners and a breakfast. They had a live band that played Irish songs—too fun! All three visits were excellent. We also paid a visit to... More

Service was poor and the potato soup was cold and Tasted like vinegar and had one potato piece in it. Atmosphere was great so... More

Took the whole family (they have a kids menu). Service was excellent our waiter gave us a special tour to see the small cozy quarters for cigar smokers and back in through the Guinness door! Food was excellent for the adults-colcannon was the favorite along with authentic soda bread. Kids pizza was probably exactly what an Irish pizza would be... More
