Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Good food and nice beer selection. They only needed a few minutes to accommodate our group of 7.

This is the way an Irish restaurant in the States should be run. The overhead music is appropriate; the staff are friendly and knowledgeable; the beer list is complete; and the food is delicious. We recommend the lamb stew -- so tender, so good!

Dined here with family and everyone enjoyed their meals. Fish and chips, reuben, pork dinner (with brussel sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes) were all winners! Service was prompt and efficient, prices seemed reasonable. There were several other items on the menu that I'd like to...More

We loved this place! Very good ambiance with Irish music and decor. Our food was excellent and was as authentic as far as I could tell. Great menu variety.

A group of five coworkers had a great meal. We all had something different and no one was disappointed. Myself, can't go wrong with fish and chips!

Description
For the Irish, a Pub is far more than a bar… a Pub is a community gathering place – an overgrown “family room” where members of the neighborhood meet to share the latest news, laugh, and ofttimes solve the world’s problems. At an Irish Pub, the idea of being a “regular” is, well, a bit of a lunacy… one can no more be a regular in a Pub than a regular in one’s own home! For the Irish, the Pub is a home – not for its beer, or stout, or libations, but for its environment of family… comfort… and safety from the stormy rains that grow the Irish countryside emerald green in grass and clover. For a traveler, the attraction of the Pub is the Irish philosophy that there are no strangers, but rather friends not yet met. To enter a Pub is to drop by a friend’s home… the greeting is warm and genuine, the service is gracious, the experience is relaxing and fun.
