The place is nice - lots of dark wood, with ridiculously high side benches - but a touch cavernous and the light level too low, in imitation of a London or Dublin pub, which it doesn't quite manage. The choice of beer is good, but not the best in town. Service is good. The food was hearty, not what you would call subtle (and some might call it heavy), but appetising enough. I preferred O'Niell's Irish pub further West on Central, but pub-lovers should try both, and preferences will vary.

This is only our second visit. My daughter eats there more often and she recommended it. Both times we had the fish and chips. Two large perfectly breaded and deep fried pieces of fish, with great thin sliced french fries. I finished all mine, but the wife was having a hard time. Great taste, just a lost of food. Many people around us also had the same and I heard the same comments about how great it was. The selection of beer both on tap and bottled was extensive. The lady that waited on us was very nice. We need to go there more often. Very comfortable place.

Tasty, different food, great beer & whiskey selection. Cozy pub type atmosphere. Staff was helpful & attentive even with a full house. My wife enjoyed her "Perfect Irish Coffee", it was very strong. The Guinness beef stew was tasty. I will be back to try the fish & chips.

Great find since we were a little tired of Mexican style food by the end of our trip. Food was great as was the service...and they had a hard cider a tap!! We had an order of fish and chips (2 pieces was too much) and the boxty with beef (order one..not two). Would definitely return if I have the chance!
