This place came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. You managed a large group quite well. The food was on point. I think everyone loved their meals. The service was superb for 20 people. We will definitely be back.

Enjoyed our meal. Nice atmosphere and food. We had Galway burger and fish/ chips. All done well. Great staff. Did notice what appeared to be the managers just standing at back of restaurant chatting with each other the majority of the time we were there....More

Guinness was the best thing. I had Corned Beef and cabbage it was very good. My companion had shepherd's pie He was not thrilled. It was 99% mashed potatoes. Bavarian pretzel was yummy. Enjoyed the atmosphere. We were seated on the porch surrounded by vines

Good daily drink specials. Spinach and artichoke app was very good. The outside patio was lovely. A very different type of atmosphere. Good service and reasonable prices

I didn't really see an "Irish" flair when I was there either, no "costumes, talks". I think it's more of a name but a great place to eat.
