“Great place for lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

My daughter and I often choose this spot for lunch. The atmosphere is nice - the waitresses friendly. The menu is amazing and very different. We love their homemade chips - and all the food is also homemade. Very Irish - the shepherds pie is wonderful - as is everything on the menu - we enjoy trying new things each time we go -- we highly recommend this spot for people who look for new dining experiences for lunch with unusual gormet items. On Fridays - the fish is also very good -- there is the traditional fried version and two other menu options for fish - I usually get the baked fish with tomato and herbs -- - happy eating !!!

“Good food. Good bar staff. Terrible interaction with owner.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

After waiting almost an hour, for a simple dinner order, the owner finally approached us (after we started to make a scene) and said our order was lingering behind a larger table. Then he immediately walked away, with no attempt to keep us happy. Our dinner finally arrived, of which one of two entrees was completely wrong. The owner never came back and checked in with us. His bar staff was very sympathetic, and offered us a free round of drinks. Thank you. They provided good customer service, while the owner dropped the ball. No excuses for that. He should be setting the example. Judged us walking through the door, and held that opinion until we approached him later , and said we'd leave a bad review. Then he flipped a 180. Shame on you!
