Overall it's not such a bad place. Staff is friendly and the bar food is good....BUT...mid-forties might be too old for the young crowd. I know you're as old as you feel, but I like to keep it real!!

This is an Irish pub/sports bar. The food varies from not bad to pretty decent. There is some outdoor dining which is great during 3 seasons and it it covered by a canopy. You can eat at the bar, but the service isn't always great as the bartenders sometimes seem overwhelmed. But if you are not looking for fine dining and a decent meal, go there.

I never ate here (except the free popcorn at the bar) but I just want Stella lovers to know that if you are looking for Stella on tap in this area, look no further. Plus, it's a very chill spot if you go in on your lunch break. (Haha, not a regular practice of mine) It's airy and close to the water. The bartender at that time is great. Great discovery for me :)

Wanted some pub food and or Irish food last night and thought immediacy of this place.
I have been here a few times and had the burgers, which were very good, and the shepherds pie which was amazing. Last not so so much. While my daughter had a great looking and tasting burger and my wife had the Mahdi Mahdi burger both costing around $10.00 I decided to order the Chicken Murphy. I thought great Irish pub, irish dish, should be outstanding and it at $18.00 really wasn't, it came with a cup of really tasteless potato leak soup ( want a great cup go to clancys in Neptune) then came the entree.. Certainly was in a big enough bowl. Lots of sauce and food but asking it apart was a poor example ... 1) the chicken was cut into miniscule pieces and make it hard to eat, the bangers included really didn't add much texture or flavor and them the onions and peppers were sliced so thin and so Julian the whole dish was very hard to eat. I was looking for a hearty, tasty and healthy dish and this met none of those .. I will be back but next time for a burger and a beer!

Tuesday is half-priced burger night and their burgers are quite good. Get the sweet potato fries instead of the regular fries - quite good. Other than the burgers, the food is okay - just average.
