The pub itself was very nice and clean and the service was very good. The fish and chips I had were very good, but also very oily. My friends seemed to be happy with the food they ordered. The beer menu was not as good...More

Elena, our waitress, was excellent!! She either knew her stuff or made finding out fun! The Boxty was good (excellent mashed potatos) and the Bailey's cheese cake was even better! Food was priced fairly but the drink prices were, in my opinion, dirt cheap and...More

Great atmosphere, food kind of pricey and unremarkable. Was a convenient place for a spontaneous meet up. Wish I'd had the chance to check a menu and some reviews before we went.

This pub is right between the two major downtown hotels, the Hilton and Radisson. The inside is dark, noisy and all hard surfaces. Outside are some nice tables for enjoying the passing crowd. We sat outside and our attentive server was very good. She kept...More

I love the layout of the pub. It's got the look of multiple pubs in one. Having visited Ireland many times and being a big fan of Kildare I have to say they did a good job replicating the look of Irish pubs. The food...More

Stopped in to have a quick dinner away from the hotel we were at and found the restaurant to be friendly, good food, and good service, not to mention the cold Guinness! Would go back again if we were in the area.
