“Great Irish atmosphere...Excellent happy hour!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

This is a fun place to go. Happy Hour, from 4 to 6, is probably the best deal in Mendocino. We went two nights in a row and had happy hour food, the tacos and the sliders. The tacos were a huge surprise...probably some of the best we have ever had. The sliders were also quite good.

“Great beer, friendly staff, great mix of local characters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

We really feel like we got to know the local flavor here; the rough-and-tumble yet friendly fishermen types, young and old alike, even an ancient Rastafarian who we thought was a statue at first! Local craft beers are quite tasty, and the food was above most standard bar fare. Open later than most places in town, a great place to end the night. Don't worry about a designated driver; chances are, you are not more than 3-4 blocks from wherever you're staying :)

“#1??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

It really should be called a bar with some tables-not really a true pub. The waitress was lovely-she couldn't have been nicer!The BLAT sandwich was delicious, can't say the same about the French Onion soup. I guess the "locals" are the attraction; if you want to call them that. The only available table when we arrived was next to the door and the Bartender insisted on that the door remain open-hello? 8pm on a february evening?They have a curtain to keep the cool air out, but that had a minor effect. I still can't figure out the #1 ranking!! Hope you have better luck!

“Best Fish N Chips!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

All the food is good and the drinks are really good but it gets very very busy so be ready to wait a little while, can't be in a hurry to eat here.
