Packed and rowdy with tv's for watching sports of any kind. college and post-college crowd late night, but very friendly all around.

Can't say I had a full meal here but stopped in for appetizers and beverages. Great beer selection as well as wine. The wings are fantastic. Great atmosphere. Very friendly and attentive bar tender.

One of my favorite restaurants in Old Town Alexandria. The decor is authentic Irish. The beer selection is outstanding! The food is very good and will not break the bank. I recommend the Scotch Eggs as a starter and the Guniness burger for dinner...with a nice pint of Guiness as well! On the weekends, they serve a nice brunch until 3pm.

My husband and I stopped for a quick bite at lunch time. We were the first customers so we enjoyed great semi-quiet ambience and super friendly staff. Our meal was ok. Guinness burger was a little dry but the whole meal was good overall. Their dinner selection is much better. This pub is very unique and grant looking inside. We loved it.

The menu was great. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed the food. The fish and chips were extremely good, crispy but not greasy. Great beer selection and the entertainment in the bar was really good. Really helped to make it feel like an Irish bar along with the décor!
