If you're into really loud, not so good music, this is your place. They have live entertainment every night (so I'm told). We called ahead to reserve the party room only to find when we arrived that they had seated another party in the room. We waited for about 39 minutes to sit down. The food was authentic, Irish and...

I've eaten the pizza here on a couple of occasions. It is very good. A quick phone call to place the order and it is ready on time and hot when I arrive for pick up.

Walked to the pub from the hotel. Great service and food. I like that they have a quitter room away from the live music. You can still hear it but you can also chat. Actually came back here after we returned from our trip. Why go anywhere else if you enjoyed it the first time.

The menu is an interesting mix of traditional Irish comfort food with an international mix of other foods. The curry was pleasing. The naan bread was perfect. Service was spotty and generally absent. The place was not that busy to justify that level of inattention by the waitress. There was a band playing mostly country music. The music was louder... More

Food selection was just as expected from an Irish pub and the live music offered a nice ambience. Service started out pretty decent but went downhill from there as we had to ask multiple times for drinks and extra items. I thought the food was good as was evidenced by the empty plate I left behind and prices were reasonable.... More

I was excited to go here because I love Irish pubs but this one was just lacking personality. Granted, this location puts it into the Monday-Friday after work crowd. We went on a Saturday and there were only 4 other people in the place. . And it was St. Patrick's day weekend! The Steak & Guinness pie and it was... More

Not a good place- good location (if you happen to be stranded in that area for a meeting), but basically everything is low except the prices which are high. Drink in your room and order a pizza you will be way happier and save money. Or go to one of the other restaurants in the area, all of which including... More

We had dinner at this pub once before as it's close to our hotel. Service was good and so was the food. Fun ambiance, and nice booths. Good value. Will be back.
