Nice place for a bit to eat. Good happy hour specials. Only thing surprised me was the music. Expected to have Irish tunes, but wasn't. Great service too.

Hi Michelle, thank you for your honest review. We're glad you enjoyed the food & service. We do mix up the music a bit, but we can definitely be more mindful about playing more Irish music. Cheers

Finnegan Blue is one of our best resident acts! They play here at least once a month, as well as on New Year's Eve and St. Patrick's Day, so come back and join us again if you're in town! Cheers

We stopped in the Dubliner after dinner for a few drinks and to watch the live music. It is a great venue for music with the large open windows facing the sidewalk. We will definitely be back to try the food!
