Just another non-descipt pub at the end of a popular tourist area. Atmosphere nothing special at all. Staff was extremely nice & attentive. Ordered the grilled cheese w/ bacon as I wasn't very hungry. OMG. This was one of the best sandwich I'd ever had. Ate the whole thing. My bud had chips & fish that he said were delicious. Best part=it was cheap!

I love a nice dive, and they had great pub food.. Super nice service, prompt and great price. Had a great chat with the bar tender as i waited for my burger, which was good and the fries were wonderful also. If your looking for a local place for a nice drink, friendly people, not as many tourists as commercial street id suggest rosies!

This is a great local hangout with decent food and a fun atmosphere. It is close to the main drag and is a good place for a beer.

Go here if you enjoy over cooked over seasoned pub food and cheap beer, long waits, and rude service.

Rosie's is the kind of place you'd expect to find in your neighborhood and be glad it's there. Antithesis of tourist, antithesis of foodie, this is a relaxed, normal, downhome hangout. Good range of beers on tap, good variety of munchies, sandwiches, burgers and seafood. Reasonable prices, friendly and efficient waitstaff. Play darts, chat with your neighbors and imagine you're in a English pub. Hope Travel and Leisure never writes this one up.
