“Good food if you don't mind a loud atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

My husband and I usually split their California chicken sandwich with avocado & french fries, and it's always good. The service is usually a bit slow & sometimes inexperienced, and I recently had a glass of wine that wasn't good at all (I didn't send it back - my fault there).
But if you don't mind the loud music, the food is pretty good.

“Nice Location, OK Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

The restaurant is located in the Santana Row area of San Jose. We ate outside since it was a nice night and a band was playing outdoors across the street. The service was good and the staff friendly. The food was average. Nothing special but not bad. Overall a good experience.

“Irish food?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

As an Irish person very disappointed in my meal. Food in Ireland can be very good. This tasted nothing like I have had in My native land.

“Not your typical pub!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

Overall great place for lunch, dinner, and dancing. I went there not too long ago for lunch with coworkers. Had a great time sitting in the patio. We shared bangers and they were yummy. For lunch I had a burger I was able to customize it and it was delicious. The waitress also recommended bread pudding which was the best I've ever had. We liked it so much went backfired after work cocktails and ended up staying all night. The manager Fi remembered us and gave us a free appetizer. Great place to go in Santana row!

“Simply delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Had early diner last week with 3 coworkers. Everyone was happy with calamari & baken wrap prawns. Fish & chips, steak, salmon, were all high quality.
