Great beer selection, but went on "half price beer" Sunday, and only the special or unspecial? beer is half price. Was planning on having more than one, but could not handle the worst music/atmosphere ever! No wonder is was empty!!

Great location close to all the action. Had 4 burgers at our table and every one was delicious. Good bun and ingredient. Meat was juice and well seasoned. Outdoor smoking patio that opens into the restaurant resulting in a stink. Get rid of the smokers and this place could have been a 5. Really good service.

I checked my credit card online the day after we ate here to find that the amount on my receipt was LESS than the amount charged on my credit card. I returned two days later to get a correction and was subjected to an unbelievably rude attitude my the manager. Ultimately he did refund the difference but acted as though... More

Hubby and I stopped in to have a couple of drinks around 7pm on a Wednesday. We had already eaten dinner. He ordered the special $5 pint of Harp and I ordered a Pinot Grigio wine. They only had one glass worth of the wine left in the bottle and no backup. I was bummed but there can always be... More

First time We tried this Irish pub. We are European and we thought it felt pretty authentic. More surprising, the quality of the food was high. We had the shepherd's pie and the fish and chips and the bread and butter pudding. The beers were obviously very good and the music was really nice. The service was very kind and... More

Love the food, great bar, can be noisy when there's a band, so sit in the large room on the right as you enter if it's a problem. Real Irish food, perfectly cooked, good wait staff. They know Shepherd's Pie is a lamb dish not beef (that's Cottage Pie) and save room for the bread and butter pudding dessert, easily... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the authentic food selection in this Pub there was actual lamb shepherd's pie and chicken curry and all the other usual fare but you don't usually find those two in an American Irish Pub. There was also a proper pour for the Guinness, patient with the right amount of head at the top of the... More

A very unique decor with interesting servers...and patrons. We were there midday so we missed the lunch crowd but service was above average, selections were interesting and the Monday $6 burger deal is impossible to beat. We consumed two Rasher burgers, a Belfast Burger and a very unique Gouda Mac & Cheese without so much as a hint of anything... More
