This weekend was my first time dining at this restaurant. Despite a couple other reviews I have read, I was incredibly happy! The place was packed this past Friday evening. My family and I were only able to get a four-top table outside, but the space-heaters kept us quite cozy. The service was a little on the slower side, yet friendly, and the food was hot at the table. If you are looking for authentic Irish pub cuisine, this is probably more a mix of Americanized-Irish cuisine. However, my medium-cooked burger was cooked to Irish-perfection...red as can be on the inside. The beer selection is huge! I love it! The atmosphere is perfect...more of the Irish pub scene inside, but perfect for family and children outside on the porch.
In my opinion, the worst thing the server can do is start slacking off when you are ready to pay your bill and anxious to get out of there and continue your evening. Service seemed great up until the point where we were waiting for our payment to be processed and to-go-desserts to be brought to us. In order to nail an excellent review, you've really gotta close the deal with finesse....which didn't happen. For this reason, I give them 4-stars.
