This is the place! You've had a long day, and you want to sit down have a cold one and laugh it off with your friends and family. Among a variety of beers to chose from you also have a scrumptious menu that includes the basics as well as Tastes from Ireland. I have personally tried everything on the Tastes... More

We had fish and chips and a burger-all excellent. We sat out on the patio and you could see the lake. The service was not bad, but lackluster and the server's attitude projected we were an interruption.

Across the street from the lake and seaplane activity. Good service and food. Wife and I stopped for lunch, we both ordered cheeseburgers and fries. Burgers are half pound, cooked to order, on a cornmeal dusted roll, toppings on the side. Fries appear to be fresh hand cut, very hot and delicious. We both had two beers and the bill... More

great location but the pleasure stops there. poor quality food and service. very over priced. was willing to give it a chance but my "authentic irish corned beef" was similar to sliced sandwich meat you could buy in the deli. nothing to brag about for the 4 different meals my family ordered.

Great Irish food and drinks. I recommend the bangers and mash and the sheperds pie are my favorites. They also have great burgers! Servers and staff are really nice and always friendly. Great place to hang with friends.

This place has been in Tavares forever and has that old time pub feel. This place kicks out some awesome food also though! Great burgers and Irish pub fare. Make sure to check it out!

Great last minute decision for an evening meal. It was close to closing time, yet we weren't rushed, the food was fresh and prepared properly. Excellent service . I have been here many times and never disappointed by the service, menu, or preparation of food, it's always excellent.

They have a very extensive menu, everything from steaks to Shepard's pie to house made crisps. We weren't really hungry as we had just stopped by to have a couple beers and see what the inside looked like, but we ordered the house crisps. Huge portion, served with a horseradish cream dipping sauce , well worth the $7 and delicious.... More
