Description: After working in the restaurant business for many years, Tommy opened his first restaurant in 1984. He has made his name by becoming one of Charleston's favorite local spots to serve up Lowcountry specialties such as shrimp and grits and fish and chips. Tommy runs the type of family-oriented establishment where people know their children are as welcome as they are. In fact, a children's menu has been specially prepared for "little leprechauns." In the months following Hurricane Hugo, Tommy made numerous trips to Ireland collecting exquisite antique mirrors and authentic Irish memorabilia that adorn his restaurant. He scoured the countryside and brought every pub mirror he could find. He laughs wryly about his massive shipping bills. The results are worth all his effort. The mirrors cast rich reflections, making the restaurant warm and inviting. Some mirrors are ornately detailed while others shimmer with simple elegance. You'll swear you've been transported to a pub shrouded in antiquity in Ireland's rambling countryside.The restaurant would not be complete without the sounds of Ireland. The background music is perfect. In the pub and bar area the "live" sounds of Ireland can be heard every Wednesday through Sunday nights. You can sit back and listen or join in singing an Irish-American sing-along. Tommy says it is wonderful to see whole families getting in on the fun at one table while at another sits a couple on a date and at yet another sits someone's grandparents remembering and laughing.

“Good atmosphere, good service, good food”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Stopped for lunch while in town for a conference and had a good experience. Enjoyed sitting on the porch, but would have been happy inside as well. All-you-can-eat fish and chips was delicious. Server was helpful and attentive. Certainly expect to return on future trips.

“Great fish and chips”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

We ate out on the patio. Even though it was a very warm day, it was very pleasant outside. Their selection of Irish beverages is very good for this size restaurant. The fish and chips are worth the visit.

“Good Place For A Beer”
Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile


Located 1 block from the Charleston Market area, this was the perfect place to enjoy a beer or three while others were shopping.
The pub fulfills it's promise of an Irish pub. The bar is a full oval bar with TVs to watch the match, but without distracting from the conversation. The bar patrons are good mix of mostly old regulars with enough tourists that you do not feel out of place.
Friendly service from the staff help you pick the right beer from a long line of beer taps.
There is an outdoor sitting area I did not try. I didn't taste the food.

“Fresh Taste”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

Kept it simple, fish and chips. Loved it, tartar sauce tasted so fresh and really made a big difference in my overall satisfaction. My significant other got a burger and was pleased, but wished he could customize it a little, he doesn't like mushrooms and onions.
