We had a great time celebrating a birthday here. The staff were so accommodating as our party grew. We invited a number of folks but weren't sure how many would show up and the staff just kept adding tables and it was great! Service was very good and food delicious. Everyone enjoyed themselves in this wonderful Irish setting. I'm looking... More

We stopped in here on Jan 7th on our way through Wisconsin. We have eaten here a couple of times before so hoped it would still be the same and it was! I had had the fish and chips on a previous occasion, so decided to try something new. I had the Guinness beef stew, and I have to say... More

Every bar and restaurant has a Friday night fish fry, but here they do the traditional fish and chips and it's the best fish around. We drive about 40 minutes to treat ourselves here sometimes and it's always worth the drive. If there is any bad weather however call ahead, we drove before Christmas and it was closed.

We had the annual Christmas Party here recently. Nice appetizers and a prix fix menu with sirloin, shrimp, salmon and a few more options. The steak was perfectly cooked served with broccoli and cauliflower and choice of potato. I would recommend preordered meals for a large Christmas party as it took nearly an hour to get our meals. Service is... More

We were there with our daughter and son-in-law for a Saturday lunch.My husband and I ordered the reuben sandwich and it was one of the best reuben sandwiches I have ever had. Wish it had come with more than a pickle for the price. My daughter and her husband both enjoyed their lunch.

Noisy as all get out. Good scotch eggs and shepherd's pie. Professional and friendly service. Don't sit by the door to the patio if it's cold-- every time a smoker goes out there, you will get blasted with cold air. Not pleasant.
