This place is one of spots outside Boston that has the local - Southie or Brighton feel.
Cold draft libations and outstanding service were the owner Knows her customers by name. As for the food, it's fabulous - not your typical Irish Pub Fare.

Great Irish Pub with fantastic food. A place to go "where everybody knows your name". Well worth the trip!

Buffalo Onion Rings was the main reason I wanted to dine here. They are very delicious! They are the stringier type of onion rings, and the buffalo flavor must be baked in because it is not a saucy dish. Excellent overall.

I also ordered the corned beef Reuben and was not impressed. It tasted like it was burned on the inside and was just not appealing.

The restaurant has a small bar area and there is not a large section for seating really either. Expect to wait if you go during lunch/dinner hours. Parking is also very difficult as their side lot is incredibly small. You should expect to park on the street somewhere that you can find a spot!

I consider this a pub because of the general atmosphere, but the food is far better than traditional pub fare. Great selection of beer on tap, friendly waitstaff, and delicious food. I have yet to go here and not run into someone I know--it just has that neighborhood vibe. Get here early on a weekend night or just hang around the bar (free baskets of popcorn) until your table is ready.

This always crowded neighborhood bar/rest serves consistently good food. Try the eggplant fries - killer!
