Great Irish food and a really fun time. The Irish Sampler is a great way to try their notable dishes of chicken pot pie, shepherds pie and beef stew. The reuben is de-lish. It's easy to stay for a while to enjoy the music and...More

Feels like being in a true Irish pub. The people manning the place have all been great. Not the absolute *best* food ever, but pretty good all the same. Cool music on Sundays (at least the couple of times we have been there).

If you have kids with you, you won't run out of things to play "I spy with my little eyes". Fantastic food, great atmosphere and wonderful wait staff.

We always try to visit Mary at the restaurant, the atmosphere and food are fantastic and the servings are more than adequate. The beer list is comparable to most fine restaurants wine lists. I wish there was a rating over a five.

This place has amazing food, great drinks and normally has live irish music. The bacon wrapped meatloaf is awesome! We normally stop every time we are in town. I have tried most of the items on the menu and nothing has disappointed me yet...

This is a moderately priced restaurant. An average priced meal runs around $15, some higher some lower. Obviously, beef dishes are higher.
