Definitely worth a stop!

Great atmosphere, friendly staff, shooting for a gastropub style menu. Bacon wrapped scallops and blue cheese shmeered pork steak were excellent. Best meal I have had out in quite a while. Their take on shepherds, which the waitress described as heavy on the rosemary, my wife enjoyed. I found it... read more

I came with a group of 9 on NYE and we were seated upstairs by a fireplace. The NYE Specials menu was impressive. The variety of drinks was awesome. I got a 'Starry Night Martini' from the NYE menu (pictured below). There are many bottled and draft Irish beers. Our server was great. What I assume to be the owners... More

This is my favorite spot to come to and have been stopping by whenever I am in the area to have a meal. Love how quaint and cozy it is with the exposed brick and beams. The food is a take on traditional irish with an american flair. The salmon is very good and the drinks are great. The only... More

We have been regulars at T-Dubs for almost 10 years and it continues to be consistently excellent. Seeing Denny and Cindy in the midst of it all further attests to the personal attention and commitment they have to making sure you are satisfied. This time I had the Guinness beef stew which was a generous portion of rich flavorful comfort... More

This is a favorite spot for us. The food was great as always. Unfortunately, our waitress was a sour puss. I even told her it was our anniversary, hoping it would cheer her a bit...but no. She wasted time by only taking care of one table at a time, wouldn't bother explaining the beers on tap (this place is know... More

My husband and I stopped in for a drink early on a Friday evening. The place was not busy but in the next hour it filled up nicely. We sat at the bar and during conversation Michael, the bartender asked if we had been there before. We had not as we are only visiting the area for a month. As... More

I had fish and chips and the cod was some of the best I have ever had. It was white and flaky, no fishy smell or taste. The coleslaw was very good as well. My husband got the steak and he rates it in one of his top 5 (and we are foodies). We also shared the mushroom appetizer, so... More
