I've been to Ireland and love the local pub scene. This is as close as I've seen in America. We went to see the game on TV and enjoy local brews. There was an Irish music jam session going on in the back room. People sitting around playing Irish tunes. They even sang a few times. It was fantastic!! The food is good and they have big screens for the games.

We stopped in just for a drink, but ended up ordering some tasty wings too. The menu looked like it had some great items on it (I would have liked to try the angry shrimp) and the bartenders were very friendly and helpful. Nice clean restaurant with nice updated/cozy decor for a restaurant/bar.

Got in just in time to enjoy the last half of an Irish music trio playing in front of the fireplace. Have to appreciate a restaurant that brings that type of vibe into their bar. Speaking of the bar, found two stools right away...and the bartender was all over it. Got our drinks and appetizer in seconds flat. Really good wings, and entrees were pleasantly large. A dessert and some more drinks, and we had a pretty large tab, but it was well worth it. Great service from the bartender even though he was swamped.
