Woody behind the bar is a great guy to catch up with if you find yourself at this bar. Makes you feel right at home. Live music and special events (Turkey Testicle Festival) make this place a regular stop when traveling the FL Nature Coast.

My husband and I like to go to an Irish pub when we're out of town and were pleasantly surprised to find Burke's when we were in Crystal River for a fishing trip. They got the traditional look of an Irish pub right and the bartender was friendly and helpful. Live music at night was an added bonus. The only... More

Who knew? They actually make beer here! Small batch brewery, and these guys know their stuff. James the bartender was very knowledgable and friendly. We tried 4-5 of their beers. This is also a bar, serving beer and wine. They have a beer garden in the back and Sundays bring your dog!

Expensive. $6.00 for an 11 ounce cup. Very hot outside and no air conditioning, open through and through. Good ambiance though.

Enjoyed an afternoon sitting at the bar tasting the beers and talking. The bartender suggested beers that he thought we'd like and told of activities going on in the area since we are new. Great place to go.

A very friendly and cozy Irish pub. Great selection of beer, including local brew, at a very reasonable price. Always lots going on. Was entertained there last week by Johnny 'Snags' Norton - straight out of Dublin - who taught us a few 'new' Irish drinking songs.

Moved to Crystal River from South Florida about 6 months ago. We knew no one here expect a few family members. Burkes quickly became our favorite spot to go grab a beer (or wine). We have made several friends there. Awesome bartenders and cool patio out back! Not to mention the variety of craft beers they have. A few nights... More
