“Great place to have a beer”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We stopped for a beer and were pleasantly surprised to find they had a group of musicians playing Irish music. Not too loud either. Very nice atmosphere -
The beer selections were great - be sure to check out what is in the cask. The service was good. we will go back.
We didn't have any food but plenty of people were eating - and the menu looks to be more than the usual bar food.

“Love the Sunday Irish Session”
Reviewed July 21, 2013 via mobile

Stopped in for a drink and to enjoy the Irish Session which occurs on Sundays. My original plan was to head off for dinner, but I was enjoying the music so much I stayed and ate there. Not a wise decision for me: the fare is standard pub grub - deep fried, cheesy, heavy food. I paid $12 for a salad which didn't satisfy at all.

Beer - excellent. Staff - excellent. Atmosphere - quiet, but not dull; full, but not crowded. Very enjoyable. I will definitely return, just not for dinner.

“Great Beers”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

real irish food, live music and love the set yourself, low key atmosphere.
We are from Atlanta and it reminded us of being in little five points.

love beer and they have a lot of it and good prices. I love the local brews and this is a great place to hear music and drink copious amounts of the nectar of the gods!
