sure, they have all the bar stuff one would expect at an irish pub; but their menu is truly excellent. the boxties are uh-mazing-in, and i love the corned beef and cabbage. their mac and cheese options are pretty stellar also.

Great food - we love the burgers, BLT and tacos. Good selection of beer, wine and spirits. Seating typically available in bar area as it is bigger than dining area. Separate rooms available for large groups.

I like the atmosphere and the food. The staff is always friendly. You can kick it with a full menu in the bar or in the restaurant area where it isn't so loud.
