Excellent! We sat on the patio. The food was delicious and the waitress was attentive. We are vegetarian and there were options for us.

Have not been to Ireland, but this has the feel of what I expect an Irish pub to be. Great service, good selection of beers, good hearty food. Shepherd's pie, fisherman's stew--well seasoned, well plated, tasty.

Small Irish pub downstairs, large restaurant and bar upstairs. TVs throughout. Menue has large selection with some good authentic Irish staples. Service is usually good but did have one experience where we were ignored to the point I had to get up and ask the...More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday. We were seated in the downstairs bar, which is short on atmosphere. Our server was average. Someone recommended the mussels as an appetizer and we were glad they did. They were about the best mussels we've ever...More
