“Not impressed”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

Ordered 2 of their Caesar's - which apparently they are 'famous' for. The drink is definitely not a high ranking Caesar- both drinks tasted quite watered down. Maybe less ice and more clamato juice would help. We also ordered an appetizer - Spinach & Artichoke dip w/warm pita. The pita was warm and fresh tasting. The dip however was also watery and lacking in flavour. The worst part if the dip however was biting into the tough outer sections of the artichoke that should NOT have been added. Overall - not impressed.

“Love this place”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

Was recommended by a waiter at a local restaurant and she was right on. I love it. Great bar scene and a really cool Celtic band rockin out. I wish I wasn't so tired because I guess there was another band coming on later. This is the kind of place where you can belly up to the bar and meet people or just chill out and listen to music. They also have a ton of great beers on tap. I did not try the food but they had a full restaurant as well.

“Still a real pub”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Friday night was busy but the bartenders were still top notch especially the guy who looks like Joey from Friends (except for his tie the damsel to the railroad track moustache) Food was good and the beer glass was far from empty before someone came along to top up. A must for pub enthusiasts !
