Although physically, this historic building offers the chance for an authentic Irish pub experience, there’s not much that awaits inside. I went on a Friday night for grub (very mediocre Shepherd’s Pie, which made me crave a visit home for Mom’s real version) and found...More

We go here often. They offer decent bands a few nights each week. The food is great. Brunch is fabulous on the weekends. Be sure to try their Irish nachos!

Very good food and nice atmosphere. A band was setting up as we were leaving. Brisket BBQ tacos were excellent!

The atmosphere at Sine is great, the food was fair. The menu selection is pretty good, better than usual pub fare.

I had the fish and chips, friend had the corned beef and cabbage. Both were generous portions, excellent food, and quite reasonably priced. Happy hour was busy, and prices were great. This is a large restaurant, not exactly cozy pub -like, but not too noisy,...More

A fun hardscrabble atmosphere on the edge of the hardscrabble Shockoe neighborhood near the Richmond railroad station. We were three dads and four kids looking for lunch on a very cold December day. The kids had a great time. The waitress was Asian, not Irish...More

Sine (pronounced "Shin-ay) Irish Pub and Restaurant in Richmond's historic Shockoe Slip opened in May, 1999, when renovations of the former warehouse space were complete. Modeled after authentic "city pubs" in Ireland, parts of Sine's rustic interior were actually designed and built in the mother country then transported across the Atlantic. The result is a comfortable and traditional Irish pub accessible to all in the Richmond Metropolitan area. With cozy snugs, a huge bar and spacious dining areas, patrons will agree - Sine lives up to its Gaelic name - "This is it!". Pubs in Ireland are a community gathering place - a comfortable place for family and friends to spend some time together. At Sine, we've tried to create the same atmosphere with great food and plenty of cozy areas to sit and relax. Our menu includes traditional Irish pub fare as well as American food served with a Celtic flair. We serve lunch, after work specials, dinner and Sunday brunch. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, our pub patrons enjoy live entertainment for free. We're happy to serve large parties and will even take care of special events - just contact our general manager. Sine Irish Pub and Restaurant is located at 1327 East Cary Street in Shockoe Slip. Stop in and see for yourself why Sine is "it"!
