Food very good and staff wonderful, atmosphere is like you were eating at a pub in Ireland. Only problem is parking they do not have their own lot. suggestion is park in municipal lot about a block away or if you are in walking distance is to use feet.

I have been here a few times and found the place to have a nice low key but fairly noisy environment. Waitresses are efficient and good natured. I've enjoyed several of the Irish entrees but the food is not so much the thing as the atmosphere. A good place to meet some friends.

Figuring it to be a good Irish place, I ordered a black and tan and was served a glass of mud - the beers were mixed rather than the Guinness floating on the lager/pale ale. When I called the waiter out on it, he gave me some BS excuse. The corn beef sandwiches were OK, but overpriced for what they... More

Went to the Pub for our regular pre St. Patrick's Day corn beef and beer. I feel that they have the best corn beef in the suburbs. Cooked to perfection . Tender and juicy. Getting ready for their huge St. Patrick's Day festivities for the weekend. They will have various Irish 🍀 Bands and Irish Dancers all weekend. Their other... More

Went on a Saturday night. Crowded and loud. My friend fell down those steps you see in the pic because they are pitch black in the evening and not marked, twisted her ankle. Managers didn't even offer her a free drink. In fact, I ordered a salad with ranch on the side, never received the dressing, but was charged .50... More

Been going here for years and always have a great time. Great selection of Beer and Irish Whiskey. The food Is above average and large portions on most dishes. Live music on most weekends adds to the lively atmosphere. It is an older crowd in general.
