Finally had some food here. Wish I would've done so earlier! The Shephards pie quesadilla is awesome and for $5 can't be beat. Fresh cut fries and $5 burgers (fresh) all Monday till close. Open mic nights, karaoke on Wednesday, Trivia on Thursday and a free tab for the winner. Nice outside patio to enjoy the weather. TJ behind the... More

The only thing Irish about this bar is its name. Good happy hour specials everyday. Lots of college kids at night. Awesome french fries and good burgers. Live music on the weekends with an outside bar and patio. Saturday night sink or swim for $10. Chicken philly is good and bangers and mash are decent. Good local bar.

We visited here on an early weeknight, it was myself, my wife and my sons, aged 4 and 9. The weather was nice so we sat outside. The food was decent, nothing spectacular but solid. The portion size is good. The bangers and mash was tastey. I would consider going back.

We were seated promptly on a Saturday evening - in the empty restaurant. Got our drinks, asked for a double got a single. Ordered food - it was mediocre at best, which was really sad because I was excited looking at the options on the menu. Our waitress while very nice just seemed spacey. She would notice something, say she... More

Went with friends for the Shephard's Pie we had heard so much about and we were definitely not disappointed!

I went here with my extended family including my teenage children for lunch. There were a few other patrons there. Our server was from Ireland and was very friendly and our food was fantastic. The inside is dark but resembles an Irish pub.

Used to hang out here all the time. The bar staff and patrons quickly become your best friends and make you feel very at home. Very friendly and eager help out. Don't mess around, get the jameson burger it's delicious. Thursdays are trivia night too and it gets packed. I highly recommend checking it out. Great spot.
