“Watering Hole, Great Food”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed the shepard' Pie, The Cubano and the Early Grave along with local North Carolina beers. The Irish pub is modeled after a movie and has an authentic feel, very comfortable and enjoyable. Our server was pleasant and patient with our questions, requests for beer tastes since it was our first visit, but not for our son who is a grad student at Duke.

“excellent bar service”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Good prices & excellent service. I wish we had tried the food here, it looked & smelled amazing. This was the only fun place open that we found on a Saturdaynight. The crowd was lively.

“Great food, service and fun pub atmosphere”
Reviewed November 3, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

This is in downtown Durham and very popular. It is a pub so it was surprising how good the food is and of course the drinks! Try the burger and garlic fries. We go at least one or two times per month. For excellent service, ask for Casey. She's worth a great tip.

Demand that they put the fried banana peppers back on the menu! They are the most DELICIOUS things ever. A reason for living. In Durham.

The Pub is nice. Some nice beers and snacks. Not too expensive. The atmosphere was nice. Better then most bars at Main Street.
