Fun, Irish bar. We had the meatloaf and it was fantastic! the service was good. They usually have outdoor seating but it is temporarily closed due to road construction. They have little, intimate nooks for smaller parties to sit. Board games. And a kissing room!

Cheese andTomato Bisque soup to start, followed by the club sandwich was my choice and it was just right. Friends had the Cobb salad which was full of everything and the salmon salad where the salmon was huge. The only issue we had was when...More
