The food is good and drinks are reasonable in this Irish themed bar. Be SURE to plan your trip after consulting the website to see if Tim McBride is going to be entertaining. He is a naturalized American originally from Ireland and is the best Irish tenor I've ever heard. His show contains great music and comedy favorites from his... More

We met our neighbors from back home here for lunch, along with their cousins. What a great lunch and time it turned out to be! The food was excellent and the French Fries are one of the best. The open face Rubin was very good along with their special of the day a chicken wrap. Will meet there again next... More

Located on a side street where all the activities are located. The menu was varied and simple. Just what we were looking for after a long day of driving.

Selected TJ Carney' s for lunch to meet up with long time friends visiting from Ohio , and to walk the strip of nearby shops after. Great, helpful waiter sat us outside on the front patio busy with passerbys and some with their canine friends. Interesting and fun to experience. Each of us ordered different meals...chicken salad on a croissant... More

Owner set us up with a great table, food was delicious and plentiful. Dancing all night. She recognizes us every time we come in and always stops to chat.... More

have been several times. Menu has changed and not as good. Burgers are decent. Love to hear Ken McBride play on weekends. Pub atmosphere can be fun but not very good service. Not enough people for the tables they have and some are so far away from the entertainer not worth it to stay if that's why you're there. Could... More

Fairly standard bar and grill menu - nothing too interesting or unique, not a huge variety of options but enough for most folks. Most sandwiches run $11-15, with some entrées more. Crab sandwich was good, chicken salad croissant decent, pulled pork nothing special, great regular fries, average sweet potato fries. They had a band playing on the Wednesday we went... More
