i had a good experience with colleagues there. downstairs there is an typical irish bar with an good rustic atmosphere. upstairs is a quiet lovely and small room where you have a family feeling. The service is friendly and the dishes and taste was better than the fx Buckley Bullhouse downtown.

Just been here last night for the second time. Steaks as well as the sides were phenomenal! But I wish they would have a better beer selection to match up with the great steaks.
