“Great time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We've been here on several occasions for drinks and it's always a good time; great atmosphere. Drinks are priced decently. We used a restaurant.com gift card to get a $25 meal for $5 and it was WAY WORTH IT. The food was fantastic and authentic.

I will say that in order to get fantastic, authentic food, you have to order a pub food. i.e. my husband's burger and our spinach dip was only so-so (actually the dip was icky and too much sour cream/mayo for me) BUT the fish and chips, shepherd's pie, and meat/pot pie that the rest of us ordered were all excellent. Stick with the Irish theme and you'll enjoy it!
Service was good too.

“Want to meet people from Ireland and the UK?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

Great hole in the wall with international visitors on a daily basis. The day we were there the Bartender was from Scotland but a lot of Irish folks there. Drinks, compared to other places were a great bargain an the TV's were inundated with the latest sport events in the UK-Ireland. We have never eaten there but each time we visit the area for golf we visit. We enjoy the hospitality and down to earth approach. On one visit we happened to receive comp ticket to Gator Land. One of the owners was an individual we met. Nice people, good Guinness and easy to get to.

“Great Irish bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

Great old time Irish bar. Live music in the back, 20 beers on tap. I had one of their private label Scruffy Red. Quite tasty. A band was playing in the back room, which was quite loud. But if you are in the mood, ... Chicken wings were good crab cakes were excellent. Definitely going back

“Great Sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stopped here for lunch. We ate in a patio like area in the front of the pub. It was a lovely day and there didn't seem to be much going on inside. They have a nice selection of sandwiches and I had the Reuben, my husband had the chicken sandwich. We also ordered the crab cakes for an appetizer. Everything was enjoyable. The waitress was very attentive and kept our drinks refilled. The only thing was not everything was on the menu. For example it said you got chips with your sandwich. I asked did they have french fries and so ordered them even though you wouldn't know they had them cause they didn't appear on the menu. The same for the onion rings. So if you go there and don't see something on the menu, ask for it.
Chances are they do have it. I would go back there for lunch but we live about 80 miles away so it would be a very occasional thing.

“Average Pub Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

If you are looking for average Irish Pub food and beer this is this will do. We were pleased with the service but the food was bland and nothing to write home about. Not sure we will be back.
