Stopped by here to grab a bite and some beer. From the outside, it looked pretty sketch because there are no windows and you can't see inside but once you go inside, it's not scary at all. The staff is friendly and helpful. I went...More

We came here for dinner based on reviews. The entrance was unobtrusive and at first we thought it was closed. I had the chef salad which was quite good for $8.50. My partner had a gin and tonic. He said the gin was poor quality...More

Only been here once, but it's quite an institution here in Newark. The kind of place people frequent for their whole life. I had a nice time there.

Classic Irish pub, great social atmosphere, with the usual selection of refreshments on hand. Great selection of beer and cider on draft. Extensive menu really a cut above typical pub fare.

Great bar with quality food. Has a dinning section behind the bar if you don't care to sit at the bar. I highly recommend the burgers.

Great place for people watching - a truly mixed crowd. And fun too - the bartenders are friendly, the service is fast, and the burgers are the best. A bar you can love.
