Great beer selection. Great menu selection, and everything is good. Beer battered bangers, and a raw bar happy hour. Great oyster selection!

“Ask for Doug, great server”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Like anywhere in St. Augustine parking is an issue. There is a very small parking lot next door or a slightly larger one next door. If you are on the trolley or walk then this is not an issue. They have a pretty good beer selection on tap and an even better bottled beer selection. Their menu selection is not huge although they have all of the Irish favorites such as Bangers and Mash, Shepherd's pie and Fish and Chips. My wife got the black an blue burger and I ordered the lamb burger. We were both happy with them. Our server, Doug, was prompt and took great care of us. Plus, they pour a really good Guinness (right temperature, not too much head). There are lots of restaurants to choose from in St. Augustine but if you want a good beer and a good burger (or Irish fare) this is the place to come.

“Guinness is good for you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is an Irish Pub, it feels like a pub, its friendly like a pub and they pour the pints like a good pub does. We will be back for more pints.

“Amazing food and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

My husband and I originally decided to eat here simply because it was the only place with available parking that day...best decision we ever made! We both ordered the fish and chips and they were by far the best ones we've ever had! Super friendly staff and great craft beer selection too! Definitely a must eat when we're in St. Augustine. We've suggested to friends, and they too have added it to the top of their St. Augustine eateries.

“So glad we ate here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014

We had our 18 month old with us when we were looking for a place to have dinner and this soppy turned out great! The food was amazing, great menu and dessert was equally delicious. The staff was great, they entertained our daughter and brought her a separate plate of avocado. This place is so much more than a bar!
