Had a St. Patrick’s day dinner at the Brit. What fun and great service and food. I was with friends and the food came out hot and delicious. The staff is exceptionally friendly and the free jello shots were great!!

My colleagues and I went to eat the Brit for a quick bite and a drink before our flight. This is a business trip, so we asked for separate receipts. It was a group of 6. The server, Raina, said no. She said that the...More
