We popped in as a respite from the cold one Saturday for lunch. There wasn’t much on the menu to accommodate those of us who don’t eat meat or who have gluten allergies. That’s usually a sign of a place that doesn’t put much thought into its menu. Nonetheless, we were road weary and starving.

Three of us couldn’t finish our meals, and I got very sick from the worst excuse for a tomato and mozzarella salad I’ve ever seen. Nothing on the plate was fresh or edible. After eating a few bites I had to flag down another waitress to ask her to remove my plate from the table because the sight of it was making me nauseous. Neither she nor anyone else apologized for the food or noticed anything wrong with all the plates coming back with half the orders still on them. It’s apparently a common occurrence.

Any place can put out a bad dish now and then, but three out of four on this occasion made us sick. It’s clear this place neither knows anything about food nor cares.

Food sucks. Drinks average. Service lacking. I usually only come here for breakfast on St Paddys day because of Its proximity to the parade route. Then I pay $10 for half a car bomb and another $6 for half a Guinness. Half door is far superior. And the musical acts they get here are just horrid. If I wanted to see someone do Staind cover songs id kill myself and sprint to hell.

I had the shepards pie which was ok but not great. I was there on a Tuesday night and I was the 3rd person to enter at around 8p. Pretty depressing atmosphere.
