Friendly, great bang for your buck, lots of wonderful beer and you walk out having one to ten new friends. One of the best places for lunch or dinner or a stop at the bar.

The burgers are GREAT. The chili lime grouper sandwich is my personal fave. The prime rib is really good, too. Always a trusted crowd pleaser when craving pub food.

We had the fish and chips, and a Killarney boxty. French onion soup too. Everything was fresh and tasty including the potato croquettes and haricot vert. Local pints were on special, and served well poured and ice cold.

Great local bar! Fast service. I enjoyed the Ruben and French onion soup! Super friendly staff. Short wait for a table but the beer was cold while I waited.

I wish I'd found this place earlier. The corned beef and cabbage was delicious and the atmosphere reminded me strongly of the pubs I visited in Galway. Will definitely return and recommend.
