You get your monies worth not only quantity but quality! Sandwiches are huge. Club & Reuben sandwiches should be shared by 2 people. Good variey of basic Irish dishes served for lunch and dinner. Everyone can choose something on the menu that they will enjoy.

The food and atmosphere are pretty good. It's usually pretty crowded. You never have to wait too long to get your food.
