We went there a couple of weeks ago for lunch on a Saturday. The staff was quick to seat us and were very friendly and courteous. I ordered the corned beef hash and my wife ordered the garden omelet. We also each had a craft beer from a reasonable craft beer menu (yes, they have the normal American beers along... More

Most recently we had a family dinner here. Previously had only come to drink. We were all impressed by the food and kids menu. Loved sitting outside, when the weather is nice!

We stopped in to have a bit to eat on our way home. Small menu so we choose some Appetizers. I had the hot wings, my friends had the brissel sprouts and sliders. All were very good. Small wine list but something for almost every one. Great service.

Justs a wondeful place for what ever your want to do, enjoy a great meal or sit at a bar and have a few drinks. It reminds me of the TV show Cheers every time I go there. We sometimes walk in or sometimes make reservations. We usually get seated at a booth. The food is outstanding. It is such... More

We arrived with reservations an hour before our reservation time. Even though we were all ther, we waited an extra 30 minutes after our reservation. When we finally sat down, the chairs were uncomfortable and it was very loud in the place. I ordered their Lobster and Shrimp pie and my husband ordered fish and chips. Really awful. My pie... More

Had a great meal here with friends recently and really enjoyed ourselves. Had good service and the food was excellent. I would go back next time I am in town!! We had a group of six and was seated right away, despite being a busy night!

Great food and great atmosphere. If you love a good Irish pub then this is the type of place you want to check out. In the nice little town of Excelsior and right near Lake Minnetonka, this place is a gem.

This Irish pub is located right on the main street. It says old Irish Pub with plenty of wood and stained glass to go around. It actual bar is shapped like a horese shoe and is beautiful. The place is comfortable and the food and beer selection was good. It was a fun stop and we will return.

This is worth the stop. I took my friends from out of state here, just to see the decor and feel the ambiance. Rumor has it the entire bar was dismantled in Ireland and brought here. It has an authentic cozy pub atmosphere. Staff is very friendly. Food is yummy, some authentic Irish fare such as corned beef and shepherds... More
