We came in for lunch on St Patrick’s Day. Met the owner Ginny who was from NJ! So am I! Her husband Ian is Irish and the food was amazing. The chowder was fantastic!

We stopped for lunch on our travels and had a nice lunch. The owner, Ginny, was welcoming and had a great sense of humor. Would highly recommend stopping in if you're in the area.

Had a roast dinner here last month. The food was not brilliant though enough quantity. Had to leave half of it. The Guinness was good. Service was fine.
