I was not in the mood for Irish but this place hit the spot. Nice waitress; informative, and she was spot on regarding the crab cake and I'm picky about them. It was tasty; no filler and the fries were awesome. just enough old bay

Even though I was brought up on the old word.. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say it all. This place will have to be an exception to the rule. Service, not good.. Food, not good. The place was pretty empty for a Saturday night at prime time (7:30-8:30). was seated right away, no wait. Ordered our appetizer... More

We stopped here during an unseasonably warm weekend in February, hoping to get some authentic Irish food. The place was not very busy and there was plenty of wait staff available, yet we waited about 20 minutes for a menu after we were seated. Once we ordered we had to ask 2 different people for drink refills. Our food took... More

Had a delicious burger for lunch. Took note of what other customers had ordered and everyone seemed very pleased with the taste and quantity of food provided.

We went for lunch, and ordered Reuben sandwiches. The corned beef was excellent. They make it in house and you can tell - really yummy. Fries were good too!

Great "Irish" food to include "Shepard's pie".... the scent on the street will draw you in, and the food combined with the service will keep you.... not to mention a good selection of beers

Very nice Irish Pub in the center of town where you can get a cold Guinness! Decent bar snacks and pub food. Our severs Brandi & Jen were most helpful and excellent servers. Try the beer cheese appetizer . For sports lovers, they have many large screen TV'S

Great visit! We had the Rueben egg roll appetizers and they were delicious! Also loved the fish & chips and bangers & mash. Only gave it 4 out of 5 because my fries weren't great and my husband specifically asked asked the waitress for a non ipa beer and she brought him an ipa. But besides that, we loved our... More
