Our kitchen prepares the most authentic Irish fare in the area from the owners' family recipes, with many ingredients imported directly from Ireland. Paired with traditional pub fare, made in house daily from scratch with local ingredients where possible. Our menu is sure to satisfy the most discerning of tastes.

“Food is okay, service is good”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Nothing over the top. My husband and I went here after the marathon for lunch. We both got burgers and beers. The burgers really weren't special. They seemed a little dry, but the buns were good. The fries were really good. I don't see the hype, but I don't have anything to complain about either. The waitress was nice.

“Gettysburg Pub”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

A little tricky to find this pub, but it was worth the search. Nice, location on a main street in downtown Gettysburg. Really enjoyed our dinner there. Nice variety of choices. The food was excellent.

“Very Good Pub”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Good food, good atmosphere, and reasonably priced. Don't expect gourmet, but very good pub food. I had their shepherd's pie and it was very good.

“Great Food, Service has Room for Improvement ”
Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

I went here for dinner for the first time with my family, and waited about half an hour for the four of us. Understandably so since we did not have reservations, however it was a Thursday so I am not sure the excuse for the extremely slow service. The Bartender was very attentive and quick, however when we were seated our waitress let our drinks run dry and our appetizers took about 20 minutes and our food another 40? I can empathize with a slow night in the kitchen, however our waitress was quite stone-faced and neglectful. Advice- make reservations, and allow yourself some time if you're going to eat here.
