Stopped here for dinner during our first night in Galway. Overall, it was a pleasant experience....the food was pretty good (burgers, chips, etc.), and the wait staff were very friendly. The place was slammin' busy, but we were waited on and got our food in a timely manner. Prices were reasonable, too. For the most part, a very nice experience.

The place was fairly full but we got a table quickly (we had no reservation). Pleasant atmosphere and friendly staff. The menu had lots of variety,... More

Love this pub, the food is fantastic and although it's usually pretty busy it still has a nice relaxed vibe. Great place to go for breakfast or lunch.
