Sometimes they’re good, but not this week. Server forgot the appetizer, served a Rubin instead of corned beef and cheese, corned beef old and dry, and potato pancakes cold and leathery. Not a reason to go back.

Been a few times now. We really like the Ruebens-the meat they use is not cheap sandwich meat that you find in some places. The potato salad is homemade which is nice. Serving sizes are generous. Need to try something else on the menu but...More

The service seemed slow - maybe it was what we ordered - but the portions were huge. The Irish stew was great, but the shepherd's pie seemed to be made with instant mashed potatoes.

Two couples went for an early Wednesday night dinner. The restaurant was far from full; so, too, was the pantry. Our friend ordered a Black-and-Tan, not an unreasonable request in an "Irish" pub. Waitress: "Nope. We're out of Harp." Moments later, his wife was informed...More

In our quest to try new places up north, we stumble upon this Irish themed establishment. Even though it’s off the beaten path, we’re quite glad we did! Reuben was very good, tho’ a bit pricey for a sammich. Nice chips accompanied. The shepherds pie...More

We have been to this neighborhood type restaurant a number of times. On a recent visit we were looking forward to the Shepherds Pie. Our server didn’t warn us that some of the menu items weren’t available. So as we ordered we found out they...More

Stopped by on our bikes for a Reuben and beer. Wow! This is the best Reuben we’ve ever had! They slow cook the corned beef for close to 9 hours and it is lean and tasty. Susan took good care of us. We’ll be back...More

Stopped here for dinner with the family. Very fun spot with music and great food. They’re known for their Reuben Sandwich which is excellent but The ribs were even better. Pizza was good too. Something for everyone. I’m sure we’ll visit again soon.
