Looking for a place on a Friday evening, but not wanting to spend more than our hotel room for dinner. Just walking around downtown, and found this lovely Irish Bar on Drury Lane. Place was pretty empty on a Friday evening around 7:00 p.m., got a little crowded after 9:00 p.m., but not "wall to wall." Pub is decorated with lots of antique decor, but unlike most similar pubs, the interior was very clean. Two levels, though the second floor was not decorated as much, and as most of the "younger crowd" ventured upstairs, we stayed down. Local in-house beers (i.e. McGillin’s 1860 IPA, McGillin's Pale Ale) were very good, and dirt cheap (around $ 3.00 a glass.) (Also, the "house pouring whiskey" was Irish "Tullamore Dew" - I almost had a heart attack when one of the younger female patrons ordered her whiskey with pickle juice - why would you do that? She said it sweetened the taste of the whiskey - guess it's a Philadelphia thing.) For dinner, the entrees were mostly around $ 10 - and I thought a great value. I had the German Sausage Platter, came with a side of nice fresh vegtables - my wife had a seafood dish over pasta, and was similarly pleased. Lots of other nice selections on the menu. I would easily say: This is this one of the best $ 10 meals I've ever had in a restaurant! Nice atmosphere and history as well. If you are looking for a nice "Pub Grub" type meal and a drink, stop in here.
