“Very noisy”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

My wife and I and another couple went to the restaurant on Friday, 10/11/13 and found it to be very noisy, even the waitress complained that she couldn't hear us with all the noise. The food was fair at best. My wife said, "that she thought the clam chowder just came out of a can", they claimed it was home made. We were looking for a quite night out, but that certainly was not the place to be. Oh well, live and learn.

“Terrific food, great decor, Super wait staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013 via mobile

The food was terrific...really special....everything from hand cut fries, to a super hamburger that was fresh, thick and cooked medium right thru without burning...friends had fish and beef dishes that made for a great early evening dinner. The decor is first class Irish pub, really high end, not a bar, but a terrific environment only exceeded by the staff , who can't do enough to make your meal and drinks enjoyable.....a really great surprise when in the Norwood area...don't miss it , especially the great Kennedy memorabilia decorating the walls.

“Definitely a Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

This fine restaurant can be found attached to the Hampton Inn in Norwood. Saw the sign while driving by and stopped in for dinner. The food was terrific; American classics with a touch of the flare. There are so many things on the menu I wanted to try and will be back to try. The restaurant is open late, has a full bar, and great appetizer choices. The service is friendly and inviting. Skip the chain restaurants and take a chance here and I am pretty sure you'll enjoy your meal. Spend your money on quality food.
