Lots of beers to choose from. The food was good (went for dinner). On of the best corned beef sandwiches I have had in a while. Wife tried a martini. It was good but a little sweet for her. Wait staff was very good.

Friendly staff, good drinks. They welcomed us with our 2 year old pup on the patio too and brought her water and ice. A trio sang for patrons for tips, and they sang happy birthday to one of us.

This place has all the makings of an Irish pub including food and beer and ambiance. We did not eat because we felt it might not be safe for our health. We sat outside (expect mostly smokers) and enjoyed a few beers. That was good....More

Black an tan to perfection. The bangers and mash was very good. The smoked salmon appetizer was also excellent. Also had a side of slaw, different than any I've had before but real good.

We stopped here for a drink and to rest our feet. The outdoor seating had a prime view of the river-walk and allowed smoking. We had cold beer & wine and tried a few appetizers. Very good service.

Generally you have to be the state law minimum age to serve alcohol. For other positions, not handling alcohol, you can be younger. Check with the business.
