I love whiskey and lamb stew and I'm Irish, so I really want to give 5 stars. But, I just can't. The menu is limited, so others who aren't into lamb stew might not find something to their liking. If you are into whiskey, though, and don't mind standing room only at the bar, then come join me. I'll buy the first round.

Really enjoyed the food and service here. Was seated outside while the mounted police came by too! All in all, a good experience! Had some smothered fries and a hot roast beef sandwich with gravy!

The pub is attached to an Irish gift shop right in Historic District downtown. Has a nice feel. Several outdoor tables (which was great since the warm weather was hanging on!), and the inside bar is also good. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Properly poured Guinness and a nice selection of other brews. Excellent burger.

Went looking for Granny McCarthy's tea room, which I believe no longer exists, but McCarthy's Red Stag has a nice tea menu with desserts and/or scones. This makes a nice afternoon stop. Had a great gingerbread tea with a beautiful amber color and great gingerbread spices with a side of sticky toffee pudding. Would recommend both. Also had a scone to go, which was later sampled and equally good. The Red Stag has some outdoor seating, which was nice since it's on the side street, off Main, so is a little quieter. Afternoon tea is perhaps a bit of a lost tradition - reclaim it for a day!

Really a great place!! This is as close to an Irish/British pub we have found in the USA. The Guinness was great, the food was traditional and good, and they even have an amazing gift shop with items we have only seen in Ireland.

We recommend the french fries and the Guinness Mustard. They have a lot of dips for the fries, and they all look really good.

I wish we were much closer to this place, but we are about 1.5 hours south and we will find a reason to come back.
