This feels very much like an Irish pub should. A bit crowded but with character. We were seated (with everyone's permission) with a couple we'd never met and it turned out we may have made new friends! Their Sunday brunch buffet is very good but I ordered off the menu as they do not have GF options.

My wife and I had sirloin tips in a Guinness sauce with mashed potatoes and a root vegetable for lunch. The plate was practically overflowing with the meal and it was superb. Irish soda bread and efficient service just topped the meal off. No room for desert, and a large part brought home to enjoy the next day. I'm a... More

Come in with a big appetite! Crab dip was delicious. Beer battered beef stew highly recommended. If you want less meat in your entree and LOTS of potato, order the shepherd's pie. Don't miss the chocolate cake!

Went here with a group celebrating one another and the holiday season. Although we were about 40 persons service and food were delicious. Portions are large. Most entrees are about $10-$12. Potato pancakes are good. Curried chicken was a nice find in an Irish restaurant.

Come for a meal or meet friends for a drink. Pleasant surroundings and atmosphere. Drink specials and tasty Irish food. I enjoyed the traditional Irish breakfast. Excellent service.

I've been here a couple times before, usually for lunch or dinner. For this visit, we were here for breakfast. The choices were terrific. I often have trouble deciding, but their menu has some great combinations that made my decision easy. I had the Waffler ( I think that was how it was listed) which included a waffle, two eggs,...

I had the Shepherds Pie and my wife had the Beef strips for lunch and they were extremely well prepared. We also had side salads were very fresh with delicious Italian dressing. The waitress Lilly was delightful and very efficient. We ate outside and found the flies a little annoying, but they did not bother us enough to change our... More

I have had dinner here twice and the second time, a seared tuna in vegetables was very very good. Great service, cold Guinness, and perfect food. What else can you ask.

We stopped in here for a beer and a snack and, as usual, it was very good. The place has a pleasant pub atmosphere, a good menu and a full bar with, of course, lots of good beer. Either for a snack, lunch or one of their great Irish dinners, this is a good place.
