“Won’t go back.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have stopped in for dinner a few times now because it is local and we kept hoping the food would get better. Much to our dismay it has not. The staff is friendly and we didn’t have to wait long for service or food. The place is cool looking and right next to the Amtrak station, but the food is totally forgettable and the beer was almost room temperature. This will be our last try for a few more years

Reviewed November 4, 2012

Authentic Irish food. Very good. Highly recommend the fired Mac and Cheese appetizer! The fried pickles were also very good!

My wife and I went here before a Proctor's show and enjoyed ourselves. They have pretty good pub fare and good beer on tap!

“Lovely looking place--expected better food”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

We were visting the area and tried this inviting looking place. Fish and chips were OK--two tasty pieces of fish, fries and fair cole slaw--not worth $13.45. A bowl of Irish stew was good for about $9--it was supposed to come with Irish soda bread which I was looking forward to. However no bread was served I asked about that and the waitress said they were out of it but did not let me know. A glass of good Smithwicks beer was $5. Free parking is a plus.

“Watch this place fill up”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

The Irish bar and restaurant opens for lunch at 11:30 and we were 5 minutes early. Nevertheless the friendly manager opened up for us. It was amazing to see the place fill up. In came business people, air force personnel, builders and within 15 mins the place was full. How did the kitchen cope with this surge?
Excellent corned beef sandwich with coleslaw, wings and Caesar salad were enjoyed.
Cool place.
