So an Irish guy opens a pub in the US and someone of Irish descent and having lived in Ireland complains its not authentic. Who cares? The Irish are reknowned for drinking and goods spirits and this place meets that criteria. I used to come occasionally but unfortunately moved away. In Tumwater for the night but drove over here to have dinner. The Bacon, Mushroom and Swiss Dip Burger was exceptional. We played trivia and had a great time. The bar was packed. To be this busy its hard to believe the naysayers...ur right...dont! Recommend.
