We went for dinner and had good service and everyone enjoyed their meal. The waiter gave recommendations that were all great: shepherd's pie, fish & chips, also the crab cake was delicious. Nice festive atmosphere and good after dinner drinks as well.

Ordered two Guinness beers, which had the classic creamy texture of a good Guinness pour. Atmosphere was good for a Thursday Night drink.

We'll be back. Omar is a skilled waiter and is very pleasant. The food is good, even though Irish food isn't my favorite. The Clam Chowder was good. Great environment. Prices are about $15-$25 per person.

Like many restaurants, they have high tops. The hostess wanted to show us to one. My guest is 92 and a high top is scary. They quickly found a booth for us. We were eating before a play and service was fast. I had a...More
