“Stuffed potato pancakes were really good!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I would have given this a very good rating, but both my friends said their chicken sandwiches were just OK. It was a very crowded night, as there was a country concert going on, so service was a little shaky, but I thought they did great despite it all. The most fun was after dinner when we sat outside on the porch and watched the band. I had a really good time. I'd go back for sure to party, but maybe not to eat.

“Not particularly Irish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Food was ok, decor was predictable. The waitresses practically had their bums hanging out of their much too short kilts - entertaining for some :) Guinness got the shamrock on top, but was poured so fast it was still settling into its dark loveliness for minutes. Their boxties are horrid, if you've ever had them elsewhere. Palatable if you don't know any better. I give it a "meh".

The food was excellent; all four of us were very happy with our meals. Service was very good. A fun place to eat in Jacksonville Landing.

“No scotch eggs? ,”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

This was our first visit. I love scotch eggs & was excited when I saw it in appetizer menu. When I ordered from bartender he said they ran out the night before but was sure someonen would have made them today. Well, they didn't, no scotch eggs. They had a whole day to prep, how hard is it to hard boil eggs? We were in Jacksonville for the first time for a Lewis Black concert. The food was mediocre but we went for traditional Irish food. We plan to go back to Jacksonville but doubt we'll go back to this restaurant. If you run out of a menu item I understand that but they ran out Thursday night and never bothered to make any for Friday night.

“Nice Place, Great Bartenders, OK food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

This is a nice big place with an outside patio overlooking the river. It smelled great and everything we saw go by on the server's trays looked outstanding. We got the Shepard's Pie and French Dip sandwich with a side of mac & cheese. Again, everything LOOKS fantastic!! (see my pics) but just fell short on flavor. The Shepard's Pie was a little bland, the sandwich, just bland, just like the au jus that came with it. The mac and cheese? Awesome! The bartenders were super friendly and the locals were as well. I'd return and maybe try something else, but mainly go to have drinks and maybe just get an appetizer. Too bad...
