The first thing I thought when this place opened was "Wow just what Guelph needs, another Pub !" Come on now. Great idea with the roll up doors but the interior is so lacking. I have been several times and it never seems clean, god forbid you look up at the ceiling fans (imagine that greasy dust came down into your food/drink !) The drinks are average the food is not good at all and the service is just ok. Your attempt at tarting up the waitstaff in short kilts and revealing shirts doesn't hide their short comings in the slightest. Sorry to say but I think the only cure for this place is a Bulldozer. Put something new and fresh in this spot, not a Pub !

The food was your average pub fare. Not a lot on the light side, but hey, it is an Irish pub. We ended up have "Irish Natchos" (waffle fries with salza and fake cheese) with a beer, then left to have dinner at another place. It is large, open and noisy. The staff was pleasant and looked after us well.

The food was okay, the atmosphere was fine and the wait staff were pleasant. All-in, it was a respectable meal at a fair price. The only thing I might mention is that it was sort of busy and fairly noisy but, then, that might attest to the sort of attractive place it it, mightn't it?

The food's okay, the location's great, the beer is seriously watered down and the service is TERRIBLE. Fewer places make their customers feel so much like a nuisance. There's a couple other much better Irish pubs in Guelph, give them your business instead.

Standard pub fare, huge place with a separate room for live entertainment, lots of flies due to open windows, efficient, enthusiastic service.
