Lunch here is a good escape for an hour to watch some football on the tv while enjoying some steak cut chips with your main meal.

But the food isn't. It's not horrible, but it is mediocre and overpriced. Go for drinks and the friendly staff and pleasant, pub atmosphere. But eat first.

Downtown Carlsbad, close to the Irish Store. Had to come here with my Irish lass for a corned beef sandwich while shopping for the Holiday. Service at lunch was by the very capable and friendly bartender. Food and drink were delicious. Recommended..

Great service and hearty filling food. Long list of 20oz Guinness delights! Atmosphere was perfect for a place to dine on a chilly, damp Carlsbad evening. When you are in the mood for Corned Beef and cabbage this is where you should go!
