Ate here on two different evenings while in town, both times the food was good, large portions, good service, this isn't a white tablecloth restaurant where all you hear is silver tinkling, hard edge bar atmosphere, I enjoyed it very much.

Nice small Irish restaurant with frequent local music offerings on small stage. Cozy but not cramped. Excellent burgers (among other menu choices including BBQ with an irish twist) with lots of custom options, friendly and fun. People like the BBQ sandwich too. Great value.

We came in from the freeway for a home cooked meal and we got it. Chef had just finished the pot roast which was excellent. Piping hot, massive serving with exceptional flavors. Thanks again.
