“Great pub for Thursday nights”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I always went there for Thursday nights, it is always crowded with Irish music. Nice friendly athmosphere, made many friends there. It is a good choice to hang out with friends and chill.

“Good beer, Bad Food, Service worse”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

This is the second time I've had a bad meal with bad service. I gave them the benefit of the doubt before. Not this time. I had the corned beef and cabbage. Cabbage undercooked. Potatos over cooked. Service poor. Overpriced. Obviously, this is just a place for a beer. Eat somewhere else.

“Traditional Irish Pub”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

I've been to Dublin and, although there are hundreds of Irish bars around, this one generally has the right feel and definitely has the right menu. Don't miss it! (Best nights are with live music.)

“Great Food. Fun Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

The food is uniformly good from burgers and one oif the best turkey burgers to fish and chips (that's not what they call them), corned beef and cabbage, and other Irish specialties. Always good. There is a quieter dining room with fireplacve in the back, or the loud and fun bar area up front.

“Great beer”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Beer selection is outstanding. Bar is usually very busy with an age range from 21 to whatever.

Only time we ate there it was fine. Outdoor seating on the platform taking up two parking places is surprisingly pleasant desptie the proximity to traffic.

Potential drawback is they often have a band poisitioned right in the middle of the place, and it is often too loud if you are there for conversation with friends, which seems like the reason most people go there.
