Great music but a little rougher crowd than I liked. Plenty if cops in the parking lot to keep the leprechauns from driving. Plaza seems to have gone down hill lots of empty spaces.

We went for dinner, for the first time, and had a great meal! The server was very informative, as we rarely dine at an Irish pub. The interior was fairly dark, but acceptable. The appetizer and dinner portions were big! We definitely had enough to eat. Would return again, if traveling in Tampa!

Finally had some food here. Wish I would've done so earlier! The Shephards pie quesadilla is awesome and for $5 can't be beat. Fresh cut fries and $5 burgers (fresh) all Monday till close. Open mic nights, karaoke on Wednesday, Trivia on Thursday and a free tab for the winner. Nice outside patio to enjoy the weather. TJ behind the... More

The only thing Irish about this bar is its name. Good happy hour specials everyday. Lots of college kids at night. Awesome french fries and good burgers. Live music on the weekends with an outside bar and patio. Saturday night sink or swim for $10. Chicken philly is good and bangers and mash are decent. Good local bar.

We visited here on an early weeknight, it was myself, my wife and my sons, aged 4 and 9. The weather was nice so we sat outside. The food was decent, nothing spectacular but solid. The portion size is good. The bangers and mash was tastey. I would consider going back.

We were seated promptly on a Saturday evening - in the empty restaurant. Got our drinks, asked for a double got a single. Ordered food - it was mediocre at best, which was really sad because I was excited looking at the options on the menu. Our waitress while very nice just seemed spacey. She would notice something, say she... More

Went with friends for the Shephard's Pie we had heard so much about and we were definitely not disappointed!
